So you think you know cartoons?

Well, if you’re a fresco painter, you do!

The word is actually quite old. A fresco painter – one who paints on wet plaster – uses a cartoon to plan his painting and mark the wet plaster before he ever picks up his brush. Plaster dries so quickly that he would never accomplish all he has to get done if he did not first create a handy dandy cartoon!
