Satirical cartoons such as Kal’s, whilst informative, also provide a commentary of socio-political situations. Some of the most interesting commentaries, however, are made through cartoons which manage to depict seemingly innocuous aspects of people’s lives and the nature of relationships. The New Yorker cartoonist Sam Gross has created some of the most recognizable and touching dialogues and commentaries of day to day life. Image two speaks simply and clearly about the nature and absurdity of love, whilst creating a delicate visual pun. These cartoons also serve as documents of an audience’s sense of humour. Usually short, smart and hysterical, the small narratives are bite-sized comic comedies remind us of aspects of our own lives.
