SECRETS OF CARTOONING REVEALED!

Posted By on Wed, Oct 28, 2009 at 1:11 PM

Drawn, a cartooning and illustration blog, heaps love on Canton native and longtime Scene and Free Times contributor Matt Bors:

As a fan of cartooning as an art form, what I appreciate most about Matt is his critical eye and vocalness about the state of editorial cartooning. In the same way that Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show lampoons and takes a critical look at news media, exposing its shortcomings, so Matt does with editorial cartooning via his blog.

Matt warns us with a Crying Turd Alert when an editorial cartoonist phones in an obituary cartoon by drawing a fill-in-the-blank shedding a single tear. Then there’s the Excessive Labeling Award to cartoonists whose work is plagued with labels on every figure or element in the cartoon. And Matt’s not shy to call someone out on the lazy choice to use Photoshop in lieu of an actual drawing.

We'd add just one thing — there's a lot more on Matt's blog than just cartoonist shop talk. He's a smart guy who happens to draw. — Frank Lewis
