cartoon, is an illustration containing a commentary
that usually relates to current events or
personalities. An artist who draws such images is
known as an editorial cartoonist.
7. An Editorial Cartoon is a simple graphic
presentation of opinion. Although it is often
mildly mischievous or amusing, the
seriousness of its subject matter helps the
public form an opinion on far reaching topics.
Cartoonists never pose a solution, they only
point out the problem.
