We hope everyone is doing well. In this newsletter, we'll give you a brief update of what we've been up to in the last month. Check out our new collections to get a quick visual overview of what has happened in the world (or, at least, what are cartoonists considered to be important). And if you want to support what we do, you can!

Historical cartoons

Illustration by James Gillray from 1802 about using cowpox to vaccinate against smallpox.
Take a close look at the cartoon to see what happens to the people after they receive a vaccination.

Here at Cartoon Movement, we are very interested in the history of cartoons, and the parallels between cartoons from a 100 years ago and now. If you share this interest, we recommend you read this article in Nature about how cartoons reflected on scientific progress in the 18th and 19th century, and this article published by JSTOR Daily about how a cartoonist incited violence with his work in 1898.
