Can humour be taught?
Conceptual cartooning is like learning to surf… there is a fine point of balance that is exhilarating when you get it, neither too trite nor too incomprehensible. You are aiming for a concept that is unusual enough to catch attention, but will convey the idea in a flash. And just about all humour contains an element of incongruity…
These are my favourites of my conceptual cartoons. These three drawings all depict “anxious”.
