Political Cartoon Create a political cartoon surrounding one of the economic systems along with the policies created throughout the Industrial Revolution. –Be creative –Make sure you have a point---take a stance. Things to focus on throughout the political cartoon: What is your stance? What was the foundation of your chosen economic system? * Why was it created in the first place? Define it in some semblance of details. How was it received by society/citizens of the Industrial Revolution? Did it resolve the problem(s), or it worsen it? –Be colorful –Do your best
Essentials of a Good Editorial Cartoon: Good editorial Cartoons express the cartoonist ’ s opinion on a topic and provoke readers to think and clarify their own opinions. Thinking skills are much more important than drawing skills in creating a good cartoon. A good cartoon is always simple and limited. It never tries to tell everything the cartoonist knows about a topic. Drawing should be uncluttered. Heavy, cleaner lines are better for the newspaper than many light lines. Any words used (captions, dialogue balloons or words that are part of the drawing itself) should be large, clear and easily recognized. Don ’ t be too much of a perfectionist. If your cartoon is clever and gets across your opinion, you ’ ve done a good job! Cartoonist Use These “ Tools ” to Communicate: Symbols: Symbols are simple pictures that are commonly understood by people in our society to stand for ideas or groups. For example, a donkey is the symbol for the Democratic Party. Uncle Sam or an eagle symbolizes America and a dove symbolizes peace. Caricatures: Caricatures are drawings of people that exaggerate certain features to make the cartoon picture of the famous person quickly and easily recognizable. Caricatures also serve sometimes to poke fun at the person they picture. Stereotypes: Stereotypes are styles of picturing a person or a group of people that call to the reader ’ s mind commonly held ideas or prejudices about the type of person pictured. Stereotypes often found in editorial cartoons include the lazy, rich Congressman; the old fashioned, bespectacled teacher; the sneaky, fast-talking lawyer; the rumpled, disorganized scientist and many others. Analogies: Analogies are comparisons. In simplest terms, they tell us that this thing is like that other thing, at least in one respect. They often use symbols and compare a current situation to a well know historic event, story, book, movie, fairy tale or nursery rhyme. Now, create your Editorial Cartoon
