Hi All! I had a lot of fun writing this book and creating the DVD & Book titled, "Heroes & Villains" and who knows maybe together you and I can even make the world a safer place, too! I always try to include the basics of drawing when I write my books and DVDs, remembering how important that was to me when I was first learning to draw. The great thing about cartooning is that you are the master of the world you create! You design the characters, give them the words to say and create where they live... everything! Designing Heroes is exciting because you not only draw what they will look like... you decide what type of special super powers they will have! The cool part about designing Villains is there are no rules... the scarier the better! This book also gives you tips on how to write your own story, create the funny sidekicks, lettering & balloon tricks, creating your own comic book from beginning to end and even how and where to sell your finished work!
