    • Curator says:

      What? They are illustrators who do cartoons. Sendak is very careful precise and textured and uses very exaggerated proportions. Blake uses relatively naturalistic proportions (relatively) but his work is looser and less textured. They actually do childrens books, not cartoons, but cartooning is as much drawing like either of them as it is drawing like Pat Mills or John Bolton.

      So if your teachers want a word it’s either childrens’ illustration or it is cartooning.
