Inbetweens: Eddie Fitzgerald on German Cartoonists

image

“Cartooning is in trouble, not just animation. Look at what’s in the newspapers these days. Where are the comic books, the mass market sports and theater caricatures, book illustrations, etc.?

I simply refuse to let cartooning die on my watch. An artform that’s roughly 160 years old, that has a great tradition, and which is so artistically satisfying and so cheap and accessible to the common man, shouldn’t be allowed to wither on the vine. Losing cartoons and cartooning is like losing dance or music or architecture.

Cartoonists who came before us kept the industry alive and healthy for us, now it’s our responsibility to keep it alive and healthy for the people who come after us.” –Eddie Fitzgerald

Early Cartoonists: Wilhelm Busch’s “The Virtuoso” & “New Years Eve” 1865

This remarkable early comic includes several visual gags you will recognize from much later cartoons… Virgil Partch’s multiple fingers, the Warner Bros smear between poses, Rod Scribner’s giant eyeball take from “Book Revue”, etc.
