This user-friendly guide from the 1930s offers aspiring cartoonists a wealth of practical advice. Rich in period flavor, it supplies the ageless foundations of comic art. Abundant illustrations and clear, nontechnical prose cover: creating expressions, attaining proportion and applying perspective, depicting anatomy, simple shading, achieving consistency, lettering, and writing a strip.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Carlson offers very rudimentary instructions on drawing simple figures for comics. Since this was released in 1933, comic styles have changed greatly. Yet this still provides the basics on drawing bodies and faces in various stages of rest and motion, how to depict moods (happy, sad, determined) in faces and stances, how to draw characters to scale with the rest of the illustration, shading, lettering, and more. Note that there are some very politically incorrect depictions of African Americans. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
