A typo in another thread (“she noticed her eyes were dialeted”) provided me at long last with a word for the way Little Orphan Annie’s eyeballs are drawn.
That set me to wondering, is there a name for the artistic license cartoonists take with the human body? I mean, if you look at some of these drawings (Ie: Miss Peach et al)
of people with a nose on the top of their head, one and only one eyeball or a mouth that seems to bite a hole out of the cranium)
and look at them “out of context” as it were, this is some pretty grotesque shit here.
Is there a name for the way we humans instantly recognize (and/or don’t even think about) such literary/graphical aberrations?
