Cartoonist Simon Ellinas - cartoon Illustrator in London
A CARTOON IS a form of two-dimensional illustrated visual art. While the specific definition has changed over time, modern usage refers to a typically non-realistic or semi-realistic drawing or painting intended for satire, caricature, or humor, or to the artistic style of such works. An artist who creates cartoons is called a cartoonist. – Wikipedia.
MY CARTOONS HAVE just been published in a new book, The Smarter Working Manifesto by Guy Clapperton and Philip Vanhoutte. The book is about how to get more out of happier workforce and I was sent the rough summaries of the main chapters in order to produce a cartoon encapsulating the basic themes.
