The best cartooning is efficient visual storytelling it is as much a matter of writing as it is of drawing. In this book, noted cartoonist and illustrator Ivan Brunetti presents fifteen distinct lessons on the art of cartooning, guiding his readers through wittily written passages on cartooning terminology, techniques, tools, and theory. Supplemented by Brunetti's own illustrations, prepared specially for this book, these lessons move the reader from spontaneous drawings to single-panel strips.
Here's a snippet of the book.
This is the book I am currently using for my cartooning lessons.
It helped start this whole site.
Also, the guy with the cape was talking like he was on the phone with someone, but he didn’t have a phone up to his face. And I didn’t see a wire for a headphone either. So that just added to how great it was.
I was messing around with some flyer artwork ideas for my son's band Bassliss. The one concept that came to mind was doing a drawing of his dog Spike with a mohawk.
This was the final outcome.
At first, I had a more detailed drawing I was going to use.
But while I was talking on the phone with someone I doodled this quick sketch of the dog sitting down. It was simpler and I just liked it more. Seems more punk rock to me; a distorted blown up pen drawing for a flyer.
Also, do you spell it flyer or flier? I can never remember.
