In this week's 'Behind-the-Scenes' we take a look at how the work of Ukranian cartoonist Vladimir Kazanevsky is created. Vladimir is a traditional cartoonist, and his work is made entirely without the help of a computer.
The slideshow below shows the process, which begins with a rough pencil sketch, followed by inking; coloring is done with tempura paint. Although Vladimir has a very distinctive style, the cross-hatching technique he uses is characteristic of traditional political cartooning. This technique is employed by many cartoonists still working today, but is less popular among the younger generation of cartoonists, who seem to prefer a cleaner style that is better suited to the mix of digital and traditional tools that they use.
