How To Draw Cartoons is a brilliant, full-color book for eight- to twelve-year-olds who want to learn how to draw top-quality cartoons. Throughout the book the author uses a combination of step-by-step drawings, pencil workings, and final color images, whichever technique is best suited to explaining the technique being addressed; it is not a rigid how-to style. The book is divided into these clear, thematic chapters: Body Basics; Animal Antics; Developing Characters; Pencils Color Action ; On Location; and Comic Strips. All in all, How to Draw Cartoons stands out from other cartooning books because it is young, fun, and contemporary, and is written by an author who is infectiously passionate about all aspects of illustration.
