The freelancers who work for Witchcraft Trend Forecast on a project basis doubt the witch’s intentions. Her critical posture might merely be a strategy to increase her agency’s edginess.

The Institute for Contemporary Cartooning was founded out of our shared discomfort of being a cartoonist. We had doubts about the total affirmation of ancient cartooning techniques and common comic aesthetics. When we drew, we felt cringe and displeasure. So we stopped drawing, developed a corporate identity, wrote a manifesto and created keynotes on the current state of contemporary cartooning that we presented to the ignorant. Cartooning became a worldview – in a world that had itself become a classic cartoon.
