Funny Cartooning for Kids
Other guides to cartooning only help kids draw—this one also shows them how to think funny! That’s because a good cartoon always makes the reader smile...and that requires a clever idea and an understanding of what elements make a picture witty. Cartoon master Mike Artell presents an entertaining lesson, with plenty of laugh-out-loud images to demonstrate his every point. As children try out a series of imaginative exercises, they’ll learn why exaggeration adds humor, why simplifying details makes a character “cartoony,” and why doing the opposite of what’s expected can be so effective, and why having animals do “human” things is so amusing. Best of all, there really are no hard and fast rules—so budding cartoonists can have fun getting creative.
