Once, when noisy and steaming cars gradually began to displace from the roads graceful and noble horses, many people felt nostalgia for a nice romantic period of the past. But this change was inevitable and unavoidable – nowadays we could hardly imagine travelling to work or on vacation on horseback.
Comparatively revolutionary change is taking place even today in the media – printed newspapers and magazines are slowly but irreversibly going into the past and release field to aggressively evolving Internet.
Neither the field of art nor cartoons, of course, could not escape this trend. Naturally, the cartoonists remembering times of large and influential humoristic magazines have often sighed, and maybe even shed some tears for the good old times. But just as the horses also the print media will survive in the future probably only as a luxurious pastime.
Current affairs journalism, as well as cultural media are gradually moving to the Internet. Apart from certain disadvantages it brings a lot of advantages as well. Allows immediate contact, confrontation, as well as cooperation of cartoonists from around the world. Internet is not a medium of the future – internet is already the present time.
These days will be exactly three years since has been opened on the internet our European Cartoon Gallery. During the period of its existence the Cartoon Gallery has gained recognition not only of individual creators of cartoons, but also theorists, critics and art historians, as well as a wide range of admirers of Cartoon Art from around the world.
