List of famous cartoonists with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

A cartoonist is an artist skilled at drawing cartoons. Cartoons are drawings that depict humourous situations, often as satire, caricature or humour. Cartoonists work in print publications, animation, comic books, graphic novels, illustrations, graphic design, video games, television, films, etc. Even though cartoons are often meant to be humourous, they often convey deeper messages in an amusing way, especially in print or online publications. Cartoons may consist of just one picture, or a series of several pictures known as a comic strip. Cartoons are not realistic drawings, the features of people and animals are exaggerated to add to their effect. Often cartoons are accompanied by captions to convey a message to the audience. Cartoons as an art are not just about drawing funny pictures; through these pictures, the cartoonist has to connect with the readers and communicate to them a certain message. That is why political cartoons or satires are so popular—they convey a serious message in a humourous way. Depending upon the intended audiences, cartoonists may draw simple cartoons or more complex ones. In the field of animation, cartoonists also create storyboards for producing animated films.
