The cartoonist and the rebounding, rubber artwork

PCOer Chris Burke sends a visual report on the phenomenon of rubber, or, rebounding artwork.

Clients always want artwork as soon as possible but, strangely, there is always time for it to come back for changes.

We offer here an example of Chris’s work with before and after images showing the changes requested in a complex piece of caricaturing he did recently. First, here is the original and approved piece of art.


Secondly, the unexpected changes which were subsequently requested – in this case, it was a question of different people being asked for. We’ve marked them here to help.


And at last, the final version.


It is hard work being a professional cartoonist.
