Animators & Cartoonists Memorial Site: Notable Deaths & Obituaries

Cartoonists have been poking fun at politics and people since at least the 18th century. Meanwhile, some say the roots of animation go all the way back to paleolithic cave paintings, where early man made his first attempts to portray animals in motion. Since those early days, the arts of cartooning and animation have gone through many transformations, with current artists producing comics, graphic novels, films, television shows and more. This memorial site was created to honor and remember animators and cartoonists and the lively stories they tell.
