It's Illustration Tuesday. There's a lot of crossover between cartooning and children's book illustration. Some artists do both, like Roz Chast. Some artists, like David Small, are influenced by cartooning and have a style reminiscent of cartoons. Get the short version of the big picture on cartoons here. Take a look here, at the National Cartoonists Society to see what kind of hijinks those cartoonists are up to. And stroll around the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art here. (Watch out for banana peels.) Below, watch Jeff Smith draw some characters from his Bone comics for the folks at Scholastic. In case you don't know, he's huge. See here.
