About our Cartoons
Sometimes a Sketch Speaks Louder Than Words
If you’ve browsed the pages of LARi.ca, you’ve likely come across some of our original cartoons and illustrations. We hope you enjoy them. In the tradition of The New Yorker and National Lampoon, they are meant to bring something different to the topic than what the words on the page convey. It could be simple humour, irony, satire, or sarcasm. Mostly we just aim for a fun take that’s worth a laugh.
In creating our cartoons we draw on the influence of some brilliant illustrators of yesteryear. Too many to list, really, but let’s name a few: P.C. Vey, Sam Gross, and the prolific and talented Sergio Aragones.
Our full team is involved in creating our cartoons. There’s three parts:
- The idea/concept: This is the hardest part. Coming up with an original idea. Sometimes a quick brainstorming session is required.
- Artwork: We use a combination of digital illustration tools and AI image generation
- Composition: Fine-tuning and adding branding components for the finished item
We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labour!
