Hire Freelance Cartoonists

A cartoon is a non-realistic or semi-realistic illustration, which is typically animated. A visual artist who specializes in drawing cartoons is known as a cartoonist. A cartoonist crafts two-dimensional illustrations, usually depicting political, economic and current affair scenarios. Cartoonists usually work for traditional publications like magazines, newspapers as well as for digital media platforms.

What Does a Cartoonist Do?

The main job of a cartoonist is to communicate ideas through their illustrations, which could be combinations of images and pictures. They develop original ideas as comic strips or cartoons based on life’s events and current happenings. They use their work to tell stories, instruct, guide and offer commentary on life and society, mostly in a satirical or comical way. Cartoonists may also develop color patterns, dramatize action and create background scenes.

Many people hire a cartoonist depending on their specialization. Political cartoonists draw illustrations revolving around the current political scenario of a country or world politics; whereas a comic strip cartoon develops a comic series with recurring characters. Animators too are types of cartoonists who draw moving cartoons that appear on films, television and games.

Cartoonists use a variety of drawing tools for their cartoons such as pens, pencils and colors. Alternatively, they may also use design software for their creations. Cartoonists are usually associated with animation studios, film and video studios, cartoon networks, gaming companies, print publications and publishing companies.
