Uncommon cartoonist: CRI Online chats with Chinese cartoonist Mao Xiaole about his new strip, Maosan Gousi ("Common People"):

"Cartoons, as far as I understand, are a kind of popular literature in picture form. So the storylines are the main thing, except when it comes to single-picture cartoons. When young cartoonists can't sell their drawings at a decent price or attract enough attention, I think it's because they spend so much effort on the expressive method but ignore its content."
