What Makes A Great Newspaper Cartoon?
I LOVE newspaper and magazine cartoons. They break up the page, nail the story in a second and entertain the readers. New Yorker cartoon editor Bob Mankoff took us through the secret of a successful New Yorker cartoon in this lecture.He knows all about rejection. He submitted 2,000 cartoon to the New Yorker. He got 2,000 rejections. Then he got the job analysing other people’s “idea drawings”.
Did so much rejection shape his own cartoons? Maybe. That’s one of his at the top of eeh page.
