Cartooning

Our eyes slide, from the left to the right,  through the straight horizontal line of words. These words are groups of letters. If we stop for a couple of seconds and observe each of the letters, then we realize that they are “drawings.” Each of these letters is “charged” with a meaning, as well as the words. Words can make you feel. Let’s take the word caricature from Latin. Caricare means “to charge,” like when we put energy in our batteries. Artists put this dynamic in their creations. A caricature and a cartoon have this power. We read words. We read caricatures and cartoons without words.
