Answer: The first cartoon was published in an American newspaper, the Pennsylvania Gazette, on May 9, 1754.
Practice your artistic skills and learn more about the use of art and cartoons throughout history:
- Enjoy coloring with the Art Coloring Book on Google Arts & Culture (there is even an option to print the coloring book)
- Draw along with prize-winning author and illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka on YouTube
- Try your drawing skills on Quick, Draw! where you will have 20 seconds to draw a picture as the computer guesses what it is (this quickly became a Westbrook Public Library staff favorite!).
Congratulations to Chris W.D. for correctly answering last week’s Tech Trivia question!
