In the 1700s, artists often made sets of funny drawings using pencils about political issues, such as poverty, elections, war, thoughts. The drawings were converted into prints and were made very affordable. These prints were not known as cartoons, but they led to political cartoons in newspapers and magazines.

A political cartoon does not necessarily show real people. Sometimes it may use a personification of a country or an organization, a creature, or a monster.
