The History of the Political Cartoon

Article Category: Humor

Author Name: Genevieve HoltCamp

Considered one of history's more modern art forms, but now one of the most popular would be the political cartoon. The political comic happens to be imbued upon our culture and our history. It's the time honored art form that expresses ideas, maxims and philosophies in a succinct and well meaning way. Whatever style of political cartoons you wish to view, there's no argument in the idea that the medium has become one of the very most commonly used in these times today. Nearly every political publication has some type of them, plus they are becoming more widely and widely used for artists on the net. There is absolutely no doubting that the political cartoon is here to stay.
The actual history of the political comic can be traced back to the visual representations that the infant Nation had all through the Revolution. From the famous "Join or Die" motif to the "Don't Tread on Me" image, all have grown to be synonymous with a number of the first political or editorial cartoons. In this day in age a lot of the cartoons can be found in the editorial pages of newspaper's and magazines, though you continue to see some right along with the rest of the comics. (Doonsbury is definitely an example) You'll also find to distinct styles in this day and age. The first is named the "traditional" style. This is the style that everyone thinks of when you imagine a "political cartoon". It uses symbolism (Uncle Sam, elephants and donkeys, etc...) they're still in wide spread use today, and are more visual. The image tells the story as to what the cartoon editorializes. Another sort of political cartoon is the "Altie" style. This style is more linear and text heavy, and tends to tell its story with words instead of pictures.
A thing that is becoming quite popular recently, may be the advent of an artist publishing their cartoons or comics online. Many political comics and editorial cartoons can be found on the internet rather than in the paper. This new avenue for cartoons, both regular and political alike, have given the entire spectrum of the medium a new and increasingly growing number of contributions. The political cartoon is no exception for this rule. Many artists have taken their political cartoons and satire online, not merely so that they don't have to fuss with finding syndication or newspapers to carry their cartoons, but so they are able reach a wider and diverse audience utilizing their intellectual creations.
There's no doubt about it, the internet has changed the way we view political comics. It's unlikely to change anytime soon, however the prospect is exciting. It's almost a political cartoon in it of itself to find satire and intellectual criticism in a place where no one person can control who is right and who is wrong. That is the great thing about the cartoon on the web. Not only will it give true freedom of expression to the artist, but it surely allows more people to be exposed to ideas and intellectual stimuli than in the past.
