Ranan Laurie to leave print cartooning

Editor and Publisher is writing about Ranan Laurie’s UN painting but has mentioned what I consider a larger story that Lurie is leaving print cartooning. Before he left on his sabbatical, he had 1,105 subscribers to his cartoon.

“Political cartooning is going to change its character completely. It will become animation, sound, and color,” said Lurie, 73, who has already delved into political animation (E&P Online, Feb. 6, 2003). He said “still cartoons” are approaching the “horse and buggy” stage.
