cartoon analysis

Option #2: Analysis of Multiple Comic Strips or Political Cartoons 1 A successful analysis will go beyond the obvious, literal elements of the cartoon and will analyze figurative elements, too. Use the course topic lessons to inform your analysis. Choose two political cartoons or comic strips created by the same person. Which techniques does the creator of the political cartoons use? How does the creator make his/her point in the political cartoons? Which characters, if any, are present in both political cartoons? What do we learn about the characters and/or ourselves from these political cartoons? How does the language transmit the creator’s message? Using a comparison or contrast mode of development, draw conclusions about the techniques the author uses in the political cartoons and how they apply to our lives. As with all academic essays you write in this course, this essay should have a well-defined introduction with a thesis statement, body, and conclusion. Use the point by point or subject by subject structure to compare and contrast about three to five elements found in the cartoons that help to explain how they apply to our lives or to a message present in today’s society. After you compare and contrast in each paragraph, be sure to explain the message those elements and the cartoons help to depict. Sample Thesis Statement: “John Smith’s cartoon strips Cartoon 1 and Cartoon 2 use (add one element from the cartoon), (add a second element from the cartoon), and (add a third element from the cartoon) to explain (add the cartoons’ message).” Be sure to document the cartoon or comic strip on a Works Cited page.
