We encourage constructive feedback for the budding cartoonists on this page — leave comments below! (Negative comments will be deleted.) Thank you!
Submitting your own cartoons:
Please only submit one or two at a time. Multiple submissions will result in cartoons being held back and published later, if at all.
The images must be original cartoons, not “memes,” and must not contain profanity or be overtly sexual in nature. We also reserve the right to reject cartoons we find petty, vindictive, grossly inaccurate, in bad taste, etc.
Only images in jpeg or gif (.jpeg, .jpg or .gif extension) format will be accepted.
Of course, you’ll need a way to scan any hand-drawn cartoons to be able to upload them. Please adjust the contrast in an image program so that it looks clear and bright. Images will be resized to a maximum of 900 pixels in width or height, so you may want to do that first yourself to reduce upload time.
Please note: By submitting your reader-created cartoons to this site, you are agreeing to let the Humor Times post them for the public to see, without compensation. You retain any and all authorship rights.

More on cartooning, from Wikipedia:
Modern single-panel gag cartoons, found in magazines, generally consist of a single drawing with a typeset caption positioned beneath or (much less often) a speech balloon.
Editorial or political cartoons are found almost exclusively in news publications and news websites. Although they also employ humor, they are more serious in tone, commonly using irony or satire. The art usually acts as a visual metaphor to illustrate a point of view on current social and/or political topics. Editorial cartoons often include speech balloons and, sometimes, multiple panels.
Comic strips, also known as “cartoon strips” in the United Kingdom, are found daily in newspapers worldwide, and are usually a short series of cartoon illustrations in sequence. In the United States they are not as commonly called “cartoons” themselves, but rather “comics” or “funnies“. Nonetheless, the creators of comic strips—as well as comic books and graphic novels—are usually referred to as “cartoonists“. Although humor is the most prevalent subject matter, adventure and drama are also represented in this medium.
