The Art of Cartooning & Illustration

The Art of Cartooning & Illustration is an all-inclusive resource that teaches you not only the basics of traditional cartooning and animation, but how to write storylines, create gags, and develop your unique cartooning style.

Next, learn the basic elements of drawing, including composition, perspective, foreshortening, and color theory, before moving on into cartooning techniques such as exaggerating detail, anthropomorphizing inanimate objects, the squash and stretch principle, and much more.

Lastly, discover how to use digital imaging software to add color and special effects to your finished cartoons.
