Some cartoonists from the opinion page in the news

Ed Wexler and Jeff Koterba Explain

But first Daryl Cagle Explain :

We had two beautiful exhibitions at the “Centre international”, museum of press cartoons in St Just le Martel, France this year. One of the shows was about donkeys and elephants.

American caricatures of donkeys and elephants make no sense to foreign audiences. Our exhibition in France was organized by cartoon historian Olivier Auvray, who invited six cartoonists from our group to show their best donkey/elephant cartoons, which were presented with explanations – even with the explanations, the cartoons seemed quite difficult for French fans to understand. to understand.

Ed Wexler explains his cartoon to the French public.

Some people say cartoon is an international language, but it is not. A good example of cartoons that don’t cross borders are American cartoons of donkeys and elephants, which make no sense to foreign audiences.

jim carrey Back to political cartooning
and the Breitbart right is not happy about it.

Actor Jim Carrey, who previously announced he would no longer publish political cartoons, broke his promise (again) by post a cartoon featuring wolves tearing apart the Statue of Liberty while US Attorney General Merrick Garland appears to run away in fear.

Breitbart managed to name two Jim Carrey films in his article.
Not The Mask, not Bruce Almighty, certainly not The Truman Show.

Last year the Liar Liar The star has announced he will no longer publish political cartoons – echoing a vow he made and soon broke in early 2020…

The Stupid and even dumber The star went on to say that he didn’t want to ignore his “core Twitter followers” over the years by having what seemed like an incessant urge to post politically charged artwork on his account.

David Willson reviews the changes during
30 years of cartooning for The Palm Beach Daily News.

Interestingly, as I look back on many of my previous cartoons, a number have found humor in some risque material and two-way gags. There was a will to go there that I don’t see in my more recent cartoons. Maybe it’s just me who’s changed. I’m 30 years older, of course. But I also think there has been a shift in public awareness.

Probably no phenomenon has more to do with it than social media. The experience became very tribal. These days, people mark themselves by aligning themselves with causes and ideology – be it feminism, LGBTQ culture, MAGA or Never Trumper – and often they strongly rebuke those who go against their views. . How not to be more circumspect in this environment?
