Pie Charts Are Passe

Recently in one of my art classes, we have been exploring the world of informational graphics. Informational graphics are visual interpretations of data. The simplest and most common types being pie charts and graphs. However informational graphics can be much more than just that, and I have come to the conclusion that its time to retire the Pie Chart.  Don't get me wrong, I'm a big advocate of pie in all its various forms, but it's time for a change. We're all about progress here at BuckToonz.

My brilliant alternative can be seen in the illustration above which I have aptly named "The Cheese Chart".  This may take a little getting used to but switching from a fruit-filled pastery graphic, to one of dairy origin should not be a huge adjustment. This is not like trying to convince Americans to accept the Metric system. And we all know how well that worked out.

No Nada Naut Zero Ziltch

Today we're having a bit of fun with the idea that not everything that's good for you tastes bad, or is otherwise lacking in the taste department. However sometimes there are products that list so many ingredients that are not included, that it makes one wonder is there anything left? The American palette has been strongly programmed to expect high amounts of sugar, salt, fat, artificial and refined ingredients that when we do eat something in its natural state or close to it-- our taste buds rebel. We're getting better about this, but there is still room for improvement.

This cartoon was inspired by a warning that most parents give to their kids, "Stop making that face or it will get stuck that way!" It's a pretty ridiculous threat when you think about it. What our parents were really trying to say was "You're annoying me when you make that face-- stop doing that". When I was a kid I always wondered how many times I could make the forbidden face before I got stuck that way. Ten times? A hundred times? What if no one saw me making the forbidden face, did that still count?
