The new Cartoonist of the Month over at Prospect magazine’s First Drafts blog is Australian Glen Le Lievre. And very funny it is too, both the cartoons and his responses to the questions.

Cartoon clichés

February 2, 2008 in Comment, General, News

Susha Lee-Shothaman, cartoon editor at Prospect magazine, has compiled a list of the most common scenarios she sees in cartoons, for the magazine’s First Drafts blog:

The Top Ten Cartoon Clichés

“While clichés and good writing do not mix, a hackneyed setting is no bar to a funny cartoon. In fact, the cliché often adds to the humour, with the joke lying in the updating of the familiar setting to recent events.”

Susha also gives us her take on the job of cartoon editing:
“It is, as you’d expect, a fun job, involving a lot of laughing, something which cannot be said about the chore of sorting through the articles that we are sent.”
