Funny Cartooning for Kids by Mike Artell


Funny Cartooning for Kids by Mike Artell

This is suitable for ages 8 and over. Other cartooning guides only teach kids techniques, this one helps them think funny so they can draw funny! Cartoon master Mike Artell presents an entertaining lesson, with lots of laugh-out-loud images to demonstrate every point. As children try out his imaginative exercises, they'll learn why exaggeration adds humour, simplifying details makes a character 'cartoony', and doing the opposite of what's expected is so effective.
