Humongous Book Of Cartooning Review

Author: Christopher Hart
Topic: Tips and techniques to create eye-catching cartoons of just about everything
Ages: Anyone who loves to draw!


The Book

The Humongous Book Of Cartooning by Christopher Hart isn’t just gigantic … isn’t just enormous … it’s HUMUNGOUS – and full of all the tips and techniques you need to create eye-catching cartoons of just about everything.


From basic head shapes to advanced drawings, Humongous Book Of Cartooning is your complete (and we mean COMPLETE) guide to the art of drawing cartoons – whether you’re an amateur just starting out or a pro who actually wants to start drawing cartoons for profit.


Kidzworld tried it out and we found the instructions super easy to follow. We loved the fact that we were able to choose to learn how to draw cartoons of just about anything we wanted – from people to animals to retro 'toons to funny characters to sci-fi fantasy creatures and tons more.


The book is also great because one you learn to draw characters there are other sections that show you how to cartoon costumes, do character design (pretty much create-your-own) and even do backgrounds for the people, animals and creatures you’ve learned to sketch.


The reason this book works so well is that the author, Christopher Hart, explains in the intro that he’s included everything he wishes he’d known about when he was starting out as a professional illustrator.


The Author

Christopher Hart started drawing character designs for an animation studio in California when he was still in High School. Once he graduated, he enrolled in the character animation program at the California Institute of the Arts where he did a lot of intense animation instead of the character and story design he was really interested in.


He then graduated from New York University and worked as a TV comedy writer before going back to his cartooning roots by scoring a writing job for the Blondie comic strip. He also started contributing regularly to Mad Magazine.


Eventually a publisher noticed Christopher’s cartoon work and asked him to do a book on drawing [kwlink 4662]cartoons[/kwlink. 2.5 million copies and 60 books later, he’s still at it.[/p]

    Although I think a tree stump has more brains than the two of them combined, I would rather have Trump in office. I really dislike the guy, but his ideas are more my taste than Clinton's. He also seems sturdier than she is, mentally I mean (and physically too ofc but that doesn't matter).  I also gained more respect for Donald Trump over the past week or two.  I don't know how many of you are aware, but Louisiana was recently affected by a very bad flood. As natural disasters do, it destroyed housings and people's personal belongings and took lives. The damage to them was nowhere near as bad as that, but some of my family was affected by this flood, which I guess could give me a bit of a bias.    Donald Trump personally went down to Baton Rouge and handed out toys for children, food, and clothes, among other things. He also made a contribution fund to the state's flood relief charity. What did Hillary Clinton do? Go on Jimmy Kimmel and make fun of Trump quotes. Even if it was only to give himself a better name, the fact that he was so generous enough to provide for these poor people when Clinton, and even Obama, did not would definitely earn my vote if I were legal enough to participate in elections (which I hate to say because I don't care for both Trump and politics in general).       Though, I'd rather my cat be president.
