Humongous Book Of Cartooning Review

Humongous Book Of Cartooning

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]

    Tell him to ignore it the best he can.  He can go to social services and talk to them about his parents relationship with him. However, I'd try to work it out somehow. But if they can't tell him to ignore it. More than likely they're just saying it to say it.
