Deddi Duto Hartanto


Cartoon as a medium has made visualization one of most important points in transmitting messages as texts, whether verbal or visual, as a process of communication that generates meanings. The “bluetooth handsfree” version of Benny & Mice cartoons is a visual discourse filled with signs. Besides images, signs of texts also determine the direction of the problem.
