Substance and Shadow: The Art of the Cartoon
Substance and Shadow: The Art of the Cartoon |
A cartoon is a unique combination of words and pictures that can tell a story, state an opinion or make people laugh. “Substance and Shadow,” John Leech’s famous Cartoon No. 1 published in Punch magazine on July 15, 1843, is widely considered to be the first modern use of the term. Cartoonists have mastered an almost limitless vocabulary of graphic expression to entertain and enlighten their audiences but the creative process is still a mystery to most readers. This exhibition will showcase original art from the collection of the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum which dramatically reveals the various elements, methods, tools and techniques that cartoonists utilize, including caricature, character design, sequential panels, speech balloons, page layout, animation and storytelling.
