The World Needs Cartoons

Monday 14th April / posted by Chris Wheeldon

There’s many things in life that we take for granted – looking at them or listening to them every day without thinking about it.

Comics are a bit like that – from the traditional single frame in the daily newspaper to multiple postings on facebook of illustrated satire discovered in the far reaches of the internet.

So, they’re everywhere, but does the world need cartoons?

Mike Nicholas hopes so; he draws them for a living at Run Mouse Run, and talked to Peter Barr about them for the KickstART Festival workshop.
