The origins of the word cartoon come from the italian word cartone, meaning strong heavy paper. Cartones were used by renaissance artists in the composition of complex fresco. They would draw parts of the fresco onto cartones and use them to map the fresco design onto the wall or ceiling. They would often make holes in the cartone and blow soot through to map the design onto the wall or ceiling. The first modern use of the word cartoon can be found in Punch magazine in the 1843 when the many satirical drawings and illustrations were first referred to as cartoons. This was supposed to be an ironic comment on the subjects they often lampooned - namely the egotistical, self-important London politicians of the time - but due to no suitable alternative arriving, the name stuck.
