I guess it's the February Blahs (see below), to which I am particularly suseptible, but I can't seem to think of anything to write here these days. Somebody suggested we do a Q&A. So here are my Q's for you:
Is herky-jerky animation the only thing editorial cartooning can look forward to?
Isn't this profession due for a makeover? The last Renaissance was more than forty years ago when Oliphant came to the states (with Rigby, Low and Searle in his suitcase) and reinvented the artform here. Everything's been incremental since. Why hasn't a new messiah come along?
Does color improve an editorial cartoon? Is black-and-white drawing viable on a computer screen?
Is an original still an original if it's significantly manipulated after scanning? Would you still want to hang a drawing on your wall if you know that the artist digitally edited it before publishing it?
