Editorial cartoons -- also known as political cartoons -- have been around as long as there's been political discourse and dissent. In the U.S. they're a vibrant part of American culture and history, and no matter how controversial, are protected as free speech under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. VOA's Julie Taboh spoke with a Pulitzer-Prize-winning cartoonist about the current state of cartooning in the U.S. -- and overseas.

Fort Lewis College 1000 Rim Drive Durango, CO 81301 [email protected] 877-352-2656 http://www.fortlewis.edu *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Following a horrific terror attack at the French weekly satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in early 2015, the art of political cartooning entered into common discussion at a level not previously seen. Often dismissed as trite, silly or crude, political cartoons are actually an extremely powerful form of protest art, which more than once have shaped the flow of history. We’ll have a look at the the evolution of editorial cartooning in the western world in this episode of Fortifact: A Razor Sharp Pen: The History of Political Cartooning. Political cartoons as a genre of art can be separated into some component parts: a caricature or surreal juxtaposition, a comment on a topical issue or person, and a witty concept that ties the previous two things together. Throw in some iconic symbols and you have a powerful statement. Caricature, or the art of depicting a person in an exaggerated manner, has ancient roots. Some of the earliest examples we have date from the Roman city of Pompeii in 79 BCE. This ancient caricature of a politician could have been drawn yesterday. The Italian polymath Leonardo DaVinci delighted in the grotesque, and it was from the Italian, caricare, (kari Kari) which means “exaggeration,” that we derive the word. For most of its early life, caricature as an art form was intended for private audiences, often commissioned by the rich for their own amusement. The tradition of satirically commenting on topical issues got started in the early 18th century with the English polymath William Hogarth. Mainly a painter by trade, Hogarth popularized the idea of using illustration to moralize against the sins of the day. By the late 1700’s editorial cartoons were becoming increasingly understood as a new and influential political tool. In fact, American Founding Father Benjamin Franklin was an early adopter, creating a cartoon extolling colonial unity that is still used today. Following the French Revolution in 1789, editorial cartooning really began to take off, again in England, with its great exponents James Gillray and Thomas Rowlandson. In the 1843, a satirical British magazine called Punch debuted. The publication was scathing in its mockery of the rich and powerful, and brought the term “cartoon” into it’s modern usage as a non-realistic drawing. By the end of the 19th century, newspapers in many countries featured political cartoons. Throughout the 20th century, editorial cartooning continued evolving into simpler forms that relied more on witty, biting punchlines than realistically drawn images. Interestingly, famed children’s book author Dr. Suess freelanced as a political cartoonist during WWII. With the invention of the internet at the end of the 20th century, journalism changed radically, as much of the profit margin collapsed under the preferences of a digital generation whose expectation for online content is that it is free. In 1995, there were over 200 professional staff cartoonists earning a living in american newspapers. In 2015, there are about 50. And yet, those few are reaching, and affecting, larger audiences than ever, alining with an increasing cohort of freelance artists that are not tied to a specific organization. What the future holds for political cartooning is as yet uncertain, but this powerful art form is unlikely to disappear anytime soon.

From the Charlie Hebdo tragedy, Steve Stegelin recognizes the two sides of the same coin - one that provokes to instill fear, and the other to instill awareness and thought. A published satirist since college, Steve Stegelin passionately believes in the power of the pen. This editorial cartoonist in only a few square inches of space and a “deceptively cute” style targets hypocrisy and chaos from his adopted hometown of Charleston, South Carolina. On a regular basis, Steve Stegelin creates awareness, raises tempers, and sometimes changes minds. Unlike most adults, Steve stayed with his childhood love of drawing. The editorial cartoonist for the alternative weekly advocates asking, "Why?" He distills current events, on a weekly basis, into consumable chunks to inform, express an opinion, engage the reader, and maybe even elicit a laugh. This helps Stegelin manage the chaos of the times. An award winning cartoonist, Steve and his family have called Charleston, South Carolina home for more than 15 years. stegelin.tumblr.com This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
