Summary

Summary

You don't have to be a great artist to be a good cartoonist. Because cartoons are based in humor, not art; the secret to their success is to think funny. In this handy guide, you'll find detailed instructions for creating cartoon people and animals. With a little practice you'll be drawing adults and children, creatures, and more. "A fun, funny, instruction book for all ages."-- Copley News Service.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-A brief introduction sets the tone: anyone who remembers that "cartoonists have to THINK FUNNY" can learn to draw cartoons. The rest of the book is divided into two parts. The first gives instructions for drawing 29 animals, arranged alphabetically from alligator to walrus. Starting with an interesting fact or facts about the creature, the author then shows how to draw the head, etc., and develops one pose. Alongside each line drawing is commentary about how to replicate it and why it looks funny that way. The second section focuses on people, describing how to draw bodies of males, females, and babies; smiling and angry faces; hands, arms, and legs; people sitting and moving; and unusual positions. This book is not for beginners as knowledge of some of the basic shapes and positions seems to be assumed, but it exudes confidence.-Cathie Reed, The Montessori School, Lutherville, MD (c) Copyright 2010.
