"This thesis seeks to identify elastic styles of cartooning, and how they best serve and expand a narrative. While many cartoonists’ have a unique or recognizable style, few are visually fluent in multiple styles. Even fewer deploy multiple styles within a single narrative successfully. These rare artists’, whose styles are elastic, are the focus of this document. By examining the work of David Mazzucchelli, Bill Watterson, and Kyle Baker, we will attempt to excavate the concepts, mechanics, and techniques behind their elastic style."
