Format: Hardcover
This is an easy to read, compact (117 page) mini-course for anyone considering a career in cartooning. Illustrated throughout by Randy Glasbergen's unique cartoon style, this book first shows how to draw funny cartoon characters, then launches into the kinds of skills needed to compete in today's competitive environment: how to develop your own characters and style; how to create clever cartoon ideas; how to sketch and ink your drawings; and how and where to sell your finished cartoons.
Interspersed are 8 "Cartoonist Profiles". In each Randy introduces the reader to a successful working professional. Tom Cheney is but one example. Thousands of his cartoons have appeared in the New Yorker, National Lampoon, Cosmopolitan, Woman's World, the Wall Street Journal, and 400 other publications worldwide. Another example is "Revilo," whose real name is Oliver Christianson. Oliver spent many years creating cards for the Hallmark greeting card company. Each of these "profiled cartoonists" supplies the reader with his or her own sound advice.
Every so often Randy gives a "homework" assignment, a challenging lesson to help the reader to practice what he has been learning. Afterall, if you are going to "draw and sell" cartoons, you will need to actually apply your ideas, your pencil, and your pen to paper.
Who better to write a book on "Getting Started Drawing and Selling Cartoons" than someone like Randy, who is one of the most widely and frequently published cartoonists in America today, and has drawn "The Better Half" comic panel since 1982?
The back cover concludes with these words: "With this book, you'll learn the ins and outs you need to succeed in this fun-filled -- and lucrative -- market." Very well expressed!

If you're interested in learning the art of cartooning and maybe even making some money along the way, this book should be one of the first you pick up! It covers how to draw funny cartoon characters, how to develop your own style and characters, how to get funny ideas, how to sketch and ink your cartoons, where and how to sketch and ink your cartoons, where and how to sell your cartoons, and some extra stuff--everything you could need to know! In addition, this book is filled with gag cartoons and strips from some of the most prolific cartoonists in the business. Take my advice: If you're going to by books on cartooning, the Randy Glasbergen books are some of the best! Highly recommend.

Great Book. I recommend it!

However, after I was off the phone with Amazon customer service over another issue, I received 5 emails of recent purchases emailed to me, which I had not requested. One CD was canceled (without my request) after receiving an email 1 minute prior of my purchase....(which occurred a week prior). Having called Customer Service in the past, I know this is not standard operating procedure. Is this a fit of the CS anger? It wasn't requested and unnecessary..

Amazon ignored the problem when I wrote them about it.

I'd been looking for this kind of think forever and I finally found it for 5 bucks at the mall complex near the city where I vacation often. It has to be the best book I've ever owned.
