Cartoonist

Type-Two Persona: Artist, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Creating cartoons / graphic novels
  • Immersive theatre
  • Naturalistic / representative painting

A Cartoonist is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Artist and Storyteller. For a Cartoonist, creating things is rarely just a practical endeavour. They love to tell stories with their creations, building in narrative, memories and lived experiences. Beauty is less about the aesthetic and more about what it evokes in you, and how it reframes the world from some other perspective. Sometimes you'll want to ask a Cartoonist just to use words to explain what they're thinking - but this is often a mistake. They're eager to tell their story, but you must allow them to do so in their own way.

Combines traits of basic, type-one personas:

Artist

Type-One Persona: Artist

Favourite play activities include:

  • Colouring-in
  • Drawing
  • Doodling
  • Visiting galleries
  • Watching nature
  • Choosing colours for painting rooms / wallpaper / furniture

An Artist is one of the basic, single-type Play Personas. He or she loves to observe or create beauty in the world. An artist derives pleasure from creating – whether that’s building a structure from just the right selection of Lego, or life-drawing in charcoal. If you’re an artist, you might also enjoy going to galleries, listening to music, or watching a gorgeous sunset.

Storyteller

Type-One Persona: Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Writing
  • Lecturing
  • Sharing experiences
  • Imagining
  • Role-Playing

A Storyteller is a basic, Type-One Play Persona. Enjoying sharing their experience (though not necessarily using words) a storyteller often uses play to form memories as much as for the experience itself. They love to imagine - and to share the product of their imaginings with their fellow travellers. On occasion this can tend towards storytellers seeming a little distant from the action, but be reassured that this is just them storing up information to relate back later!
