Guide To Cartooning

A practical step-by-step guide for anyone interested in cartooning art, it contains original drawings in all styles to illustrate the instructions.

From Library Journal
This is a solid, unpretentious cartooning manual by an artist who has written, illustrated, or designed book covers for nearly 50 books. Directing his work ideally at a young adult audience, he briefly but effectively covers the broad sweep of cartooning, not just the latest trend?unlike Tom Alvarez's How To Create Action, Fantasy and Adventure Comics (North Light, 1996). The book includes some history, the fundamentals of the craft, and discussions of various modes, including political panels, strips, greeting cards, comic books, and animation. Bohl ends with an excellent appendix of related schools, books, videos, biographies, and periodicals. Recommended for public libraries.
