The word “cartoon” means different things to different people. To Leonardo Da Vinci it meant a drawing of a larger idea, although neither Peter Cook or Dudley Moore found it very funny (7 mins in).

The digital reproduction of PCOer Ian Ellery‘s linocut, above, falls into the first area.

The strength and the weakness of the cartoon art form is that it can attempt anything the human imagination demands. Whether this succeeds is entirely up to the viewer or buyer. You can see more of Ian’s linocuts on exhibition in Hastings during the first week of August. Details are here.
