Some people think that cartoons are just for kids. In spite of this, you might be surprised that many grown-ups have never really forgotten those cute cartoon faces they grew up with. In fact, some people have never really outgrown their fondness for cartoons that a lot of websites have sprung like mushrooms for people to create cartoon characters of themselves. Because of the free web services provided by these sites, you do not have to search and pay for the services of an artist or cartoonist if you want your own cartoon portrait.
All you have to do is look for a website, upload your photo and design. Recently, old cartoons such as “Astroboy” and “The Simpsons” have also been revived and shown again to perhaps remind some people of their childhood memories. These cartoon characters, which are reappearing also give the youth of today a chance to be familiar and be fond of older cartoon characters, which they missed.
If you think about it, many people are actually hooked on cartoons around the world. This is because of the irresistible charm and humour that the cartoon faces possess. Also, some people may not notice it, but cartoons, like other forms of art, actually send messages which may remind you of the different realities in life. Cartoonists have the ability to communicate and to provoke ideas by making fun of things from the real world.
The only difference is that cartoons send these messages lightly, humorously and in some cases, satirically. Let’s take, for example, political cartoons. Political cartoons have a certain appeal to people because of the truths they present about government policies, politicians’ personal lives, political controversies and many others. Cartoons present a very refreshing point of view. People love to laugh and this is why cartoons have a universal appeal to them.
