How to Draw Krappy Kartoons Really Well by Geoff Kelly


How to Draw Krappy Kartoons Really Well by Geoff Kelly

Geoff Kelly shares his tricks and shortcuts from a lifetime of drawing. Hilarious and instructive for children of all ages. So easy, even you can do it. Every kid goes through a stage of loving cartoons and drawing. Why 'Krappy'? Because Geoff was inspired by kids who say they love drawing but are crap at it. And because it's an irreverent book that embraces fun rather than pressuring kids.


Packed full of practical techniques for encouraging young artists. Junior Education
