Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice

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.

This week I meet painter Philip Salamone

One interesting thing I find out in this conversation... my studio is literally across the street from his and we have never met before. So I'm glad I got a chance to talk to him. Philip's work is all over town, including the "Faces of Incarceration" exhibit at the Overture Center. He teaches at both the University of Wisconsin - Madison and also has classes at his studio, the Atwood Atelier.

Glad we found that out. I was going to give him access to my account at first. Good thing I didn't.

A nice email.

It's so touching that we were able to help someone, even if it was just a little bit, as they go through a difficult time.
