A few years ago, on a whim, I decided to start drawing. I didn't know where to begin so I bought this book. I really believed I couldn't draw. The techniques in this book were so easy to learn that soon I went from drawing stick figures to expressive cartoon characters. My confidence went up and I took on more complicated projects. Now, I work part-time doing illustrations and it all started here!

Great book. He displays how to cartoon men, women, children, elderly and many types of animals. He does it in an extremely visual way that even a child could follow along. This book is packed with 95% illustrations and 5% text. To me, that's a winner. The 5% text that is in there is invaluable. The print is nice and large and easy to read. I am very happy I bought this book. It is a keeper.

From the beginning of this book to the end, it is filled with (finally) basic, step-by-step instructions on drawing cartoon people, body parts, the "action line", body language and style. And then it starts all over again with animals! Mostly dogs, cats, and different fowl, it also includes less common animals, like beaver, porcupine, raccoon and many sea animals. Can't forget the great alligators and dragon. Finally, the book spends time on placing the characters, reference lines and specialty shots and the all-important "balloon". Another great one by C. Hart. I think I own most of his books and they are all worth great merit, better than the other books I've seen out there by far.

I've read a lot of "how to draw cartoons" books, and all of Christopher Hart's books rank very high. This book is the best place to start, covering the basics of figures, placement within panels, and other technical jiggery-pokery. This book leads naturally to his more detailed work, "Drawing on the Funny Side of the Brain."

This book is mostly about HOW to design cartoon characters,
and some panels and Talk-Balloons. The "basics".---- But the
book that gets into actually drawing comic-strips is "DRAWING
ON THE FUNNY SIDE OF THE BRAIN". And also "EVERYTHING YOU EVER
WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT CARTOONING BUT WERE AFRAID TO DRAW" all
of these by Christopher Hart. But above all, the "MAKING COMICS
Storytelling Secrets of Comics, Manga and Graphic Novels" by
Scott Mc Cloud. These books which I bought at Amazon.com helped
me tremendously on improving my own comic-strip "CANDY BLONDELL".
It gave me details on HOW to improve the drawing and my way of
thinking. It made the comic-strip come "alive" and be more
"precise". I strongly recommend that you buy these books to improve
your own comic-strips as it did for mine. These books are worth having.

This is an excellent book for any beginning artist or anyone else wanting to learn cartooning. Chris Hart publishes some of the best books on art that I've ever seen. This book gives good details on drawing that is easy to follow and understand. All in all, this is one book that should be in every artist's library.

Christopher Hart has truly done an excellent job with this book. Filled to the rim with illustrations, techniques, explanations and inside information, if you've ever wanted to learn about humorous illustration or cartooning, put this on your list. You'll be glad you did. :o)

Hart rocks....great way to learn & get inspired for drawing comic style characters. Word of caution - this is not 'action style' comics, certainly not 'street art' comics...this stuff is rated G, which is fine for what I wanted! I wish he talked more about how to actually construct a comic...how they're designed & developed...this is about creating individual characters. But I still like Christopher Hart's style of teaching!!
