Read an Excerpt

Cartooning is one of the most gratifying methods of self-expression in the visual arts. From the time you first put crayon to paper (or the living room wall), you found a sense of fulfillment. There are no real rules in cartooning—no one can tell you that a hand must be drawn this way or an eye that way. There are, however, guidelines for creating cartoon expressions and emotions. While you might be able to detect emotions, the ability to capture their corresponding expressions and nuances might not come as naturally. That's where this book can help. 100 Cartoon Faces & Expressions covers such important topics as head shape and facial features, the Squash & Stretch Principle, character interaction, and how different characters display emotions—from an aloof cat to a cantankerous cop. You’ll also learn how to combine emotions, name your characters, and create cartoon gags. By the time you finish this book, you‘ll be drawing cartoon characters of your very own. Your mother will not only beam with pride, but she may even encourage you to draw on the living room wall. I wouldn’t bet on it, but it could happen. —Joe Oesterle
