Attitude 2 is a cartoon done by Ted Rall that is poorly done. It is considered to be a bad comic by the standards by the article The Art of the Funnies: An Aesthetic History by Robert C. Harvey. There were many things that made this very poorly done. The first thing is the progression was not done very well at all. Also the graphic variety of the cartoon was bad, showing small variety. Another thing that was poorly done was the style of it, all seemed very similar. Lastly the main problem was the balance of the cartoon, they all were very similar. The cartoon needed a lot more effort to make it better. This is a cartoon that was very poorly done. One of the main things about this cartoon is the progression, the fact that there is no progression. Progression is how time is depicted. Sequence of panels help create time (8). Neither word nor pictures quite satisfy the cartoon (13). In the cartoon I was given there was no rhyme or reason for the panel placement, it was just random scenes put together. There was no plot in the comic which can make people uninterested. This was evident though out the whole cartoon. Also in most well done cartoons there is more word bubbles used, but in this there are few used. Progression is the most important part of a good cartoon. One cannot just have a picture or word bubbles to be a good cartoon. In the Chocolate Bunny Rehab panel that is done with just the visual. No word bubbles were present. Also along with the poor progression also

The house of representatives makes and passes federal laws. They are one of two chambers that creates the U.S legislative branch. The house may even be referred to as “the people house” because it’s representative’s are viewed and based upon the population or amount of people in each state. In this political cartoon, there are two sides one side is labeled “the people's house” which is the outside view of the Capitol building, while the other side shows citizens inside the Capitol building scared. The Capitol building holds meeting's and debates with the electives, however, the scared citizens show a negative connotation because they are not providing respect to the building and what's surrounding them. The ironic part of this cartoon is
This case describes the different attitudes the worker and his supervisor have about their work. The reason Walt Henderson, the drafting technicians working in the Wilson Construction Company, has some disagreement with his supervisor Ken Hardy is that they have different attitudes toward their work. According to the textbook, attitude is a person’s favorable or unfavorable thoughts about different aspects, such as people, job, and religion (Robbins & Judge, 2013). In this case study, we are going to evaluate Walt’s attitude towards his work and why he has this attitude.
The political cartoon shown here is strongly satirizing against the control of children’s education in Texas by the Board of Education. Through the Board’s selection of what is included in children’s learning material, Texas kids in schools become biased towards certain political views. The textbooks here all contain extreme conservative attitudes, such as disbelief in climate change with the title, “BRRRRR! Our chilly planet”, and emphasis on anglo-american christianity “saving the day” for a free-market capitalist economy. Ironically, the book “Numbers Lie (Just like liberals!)” is paired with a false math equation on the bottom left of the cartoon, as 2+2 does not equal 5. However, this is significant in the sense that textbooks which are
Thirdly, is a cartoon called “Patience Monsignor Your Time Will Come.” This cartoon depicts the Clergy and shows the clergy being fat, overfed, and underworked. It demonstrates that the clergy had more wealth in the church than the poor peasants. The people disliked that the church was wealthier than the people and wanted the clergy to be squeezed of all their money. The people of the enlightenment went in and attack the Church, taking as much money as they could. The Catholic's became very offended, but they found themselves to be more afraid of the power that the commoners held. The many different cartoons of this time brought harsh criticism to the Catholic churches. But the depictions of the events helped the people express their feelings
Now, cartoons are known for their creativity of thinking outside the box. They create a new world where the fictional character can live and interact with other characters. There, they are meant to overcome some obstacle that can help the character become better at a skill and/or person. In this show the character seems to actually underdeveloped than developed. There are episodes in which the main character is taking his driver’s test and always end up failing.
The tone of this cartoon by Jerry Holbert is humorous and ironic. In the cartoon, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are flying above the city to home from a debate on large dollar bills. Both are thinking they understand the average person better. However, the author is trying to say that neither of them truly understand the average person more. He does this by placing Trump and Hillary on money, representing their massive wealth.
Moving on to the second panel, one can see a typical family scene depicted. The kids are sitting around watching T.V., and from the balloon you also get the sense they are annoying each other. As in panel one, one can see details that bring the scene to life. Lines are used to depict the backboard of the T.V. armoire. There is a detailed globe to right atop of what seems to be a stand holding books. The father isn't in the same room as the children, but the purpose of this will be elaborated on later. Again there is an interdependent relationship between the words and pictures because one wouldn't be able to tell what's going on by looking at the just the picture or just reading the words.
Junior uses cartoons to make sense of the world, and to make fun of it. He uses cartoons to represent his hopeless situation of not having any food or money. He uses cartoons to wish for better and for the things in life he doesn’t have.
The primary source that I chose are two different cartoons that show the change in the family life of the 1950’s. These two different views of women in these cartoons are brought together to show how post-war time changed the lives of single women and mothers from working women back to an ideal house wife life. The picture on the left is of Rosie, who was created as the new “working women”. Now that lots of the men in the family, who were the breadwinners are being sent out to war. The women of the family needed to step up to be the “breadwinners”, ordinarily there was no income coming in to the family without the husband. This shifts when the men come back from wartime, nevertheless are expecting to take their jobs back, which they ensure. The women are sent back to their homes to be once again the idea house wife.
The artist who made this cartoon, Doug Davis, is trying to show the audience how poor our current jury selection can be. Jurors often lack interest and jump to conclusions quickly. The artist also portrays how most jurors are not well informed about the crime. For example one of the jurors in the cartoon says “The defendant looks guilty”. The artist is trying to show how this juror is judging to quickly without any evidence or other jurors opinions. Other jurors in the cartoon are letting their personal opinions and private lives influence their decision. For instance the juror says “I’m not prejudice, but I’ve had problems with his ethnic group”. Overall, the artist is trying to depict the flaws in jury selection. The artist is suggesting
In the cartoon by Stan Eales is the most honest yet terrible diction of an “innovated” world where pollution becomes the prosperity. In the foreground you have a tall building with 2 men standing on the top one being the suprised at what is happening and the owner who is smoke that doesn’t care what is going as long as he is making money . The background has a polluted sky with industries smoking everything up. The focus is the world is being populated and will soon be something common to us. The stereotype of this picture is that the world will be okay with pollution. The cartoonist stance is that Earth will be polluted and it is a bad thing because it will ruin everything for us. The cartoonist wants to correct this issue by reducing the
Looking at the differences between the story and the comics draws out clarity and inspiration as we can infer what the comic is pointing out to us in the text. The images do an acceptable job at this, as the highlights of the story are brought upon us, and we can truly see what the author intends.
I believe the subject of Mike Twohy’s cartoon is today’s culture. I say this because it shows the news reporters as lies, rumors, and innuendo to show that even in our daily culture’s news is not to be trusted because everyone feels the need for exaggeration. It shows a man walking a dog that is trying to see what is going on with the reporters, and he is seeing firsthand what reporters will do in order to get a better story. Furthermore, the subject of the cartoon is today’s culture in order to allow viewers to come to the idea that not everything in our culture is perfect and is to be trusted.
Stories of teenage years and coming-of-age have always enrapt children, teens, and adults alike. But why do they? These groups share virtually none of the same interests, and reside in very different emotional levels of life. In every other form of media, these groups can scarcely coexist—the prospect of watching Power Rangers for the six hundredth time would make any parent blanch, and the thought of their four year old asking to borrow his parents’ copy of The Canterbury Tales is laughable. And surely no other age group would condemn themselves so deeply to internet culture than teens. Coming of age stories, however, are the exception. Nadine Gordimer beautifully explains this phenomenon in her short story “A Company of Laughing Faces”.
Manbearpig: Half Man, Half Bear, Half Pig, but All Global Warming? South Park is a popular animated comedy series written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. While the episodes of South Park are always humorous on the surface, each show usually has a deeper, much more profound meaning and moral. One episode of South Park entitled Manbearpig, named after the monster in the episode, has a particularly potent deeper meaning. On the surface, the episode pokes fun at monster stories, politics, and specifically Al Gore. Deeper down, however, this monster story can be read as a national allegory alluding to the dangers of global warming, the problems with the politics behind global warming, and the eventual doom we will all face
