Cartooning Basics strikes a perfect balance between the "how-to"; of drawing cartoons and the "aha!"; if generating creative ideas for cartooning. Going beyond step-by-step copying, Duane Barnhart, provides kids with the techniques and inspiration needed to be their own original and skilled cartoon artists. I wanted to grab a pencil and go! --Susan Rotilie, Program Manager for School Programs Walker Art Center Minneapolis, MN, 1994
I didn't even wait 'til I got home! Duane Barnhart's Cartooning Basics is so fun, so irresistible, so empowering to a drawing-novice like me, that I began to experiment immediately and am still at it. He has found the delicate balance of great teaching&emdash;a gentle encouraging beginning for people at any skill level, and excellent quality to challenge me for years to come. Wham! Pow! Thanks Duane for getting me started so well in a new art form. --Eric Booth, Faculty of Juilliard and The Kennedy Center for the Arts
