The Future of The Funnies: Cartoons, Caricatures, Comic Strips and Technology
September 2, 2020
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz X 3: Make me laugh! Though seemingly innocuous, cartoons, caricatures, comic strips and comic books are representative of important issues in society. Years ago, cartoons were handmade, frame by frame. Now many use flash, aftereffects or other software with interpolation features to produce movement illusion. (engadget.com) Caricature artists once heavily relied on pens and paper. Now, many use digital artistic tools for molding their imagination. (bmmagazine.co.uk) Storytelling using pictures, often with words, has existed at least since the ancient Egyptians. The American comic strip adapted this for the 20th century. (newworldencyclopedia.org) Comic books were once created using typewriters, pencils, pens, brushes, inks, and dyes. Now it's all ones and zeroes. (pcmag.com) We’ll ask visual artists Bruce Outridge, Sandra Bell-Lundy, Rina Piccolo, and Joe Bluhm for their take on the future of technology and the visual art they create to make us laugh or just think.
