Originally hailing from Seattle, WA and now in the Bay Area of California, Cesar Cueva has been inspired his whole life by cartoons . He is a character animator, painter, comic book artist, muralist, and a writer.
He created Art of the Cartoon in order to remind and inspire himself on the many wonderful things that have happened and will happen in the animation field. Since its inception, Art of the Cartoon has morphed into just not a reminder of what is great about the animation field, but also a place where animation, comics, cartoons, etc can also be used as a metaphor for life struggles and a way to empower folks (even if it is just himself) through cartoons. However, the main intent is still to inspire and educate others on the art form that is the cartoon, hence Art of the Cartoon.
Along the way, he will mix in a heavy dose of some of his other inspirations including pop culture, politics, sports, music, community organizing, running, etc. all in the point of view of a 2nd generation Filipino living in America (which he is).
Many times, cartoons get overlooked as a viable art form, Art of the Cartoon aims to change that.
