9780965713603: Cartooning Basics: Creating the Characters

A new, funny, how-to-cartoon book filled with great lessons. Duane Barnhart has expanded his cartooning career from national magazine cartoons, newspaper syndication, and book illustration to include the classroom as an artist-in-residence. He now brings his successful cartooning lessons to everyone in Duane Barnhart's Cartooning Basics. The book carries many endorsements from teachers, parents, professional cartoonists, and most importantly, KIDS. Charles M. Schulz, Creator of Peanuts, wrote the foreword, and initial response indicates the book will become a standard reference in cartooning and teaching.

From the Publisher:

We were thrilled and honored to have the following endorsement from Charles M. Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip, who wrote: "Probably one of the best things about Duane Barnhart's book is his emphasis upon the fun and joy of cartooning. I don't think anyone can deny that there are times when it is extremely hard work and takes total dedication. I do believe, however, that drawing funny pictures, whether for newspapers or simply on a letter to a friend, can be wonderfully satisfying. Duane Barnhart leads you, in his writing and cartoon samples, to the sort of start that everyone, who wishes to draw cartoons, certainly needs."

From the Author:

When I was growing up in Minneapolis, I didn't realize that my heroes were all around me. Charles M. Schulz, creator of Peanuts, was born only 30 blocks from my boyhood home in south Minneapolis, and Curt Swan, one of the greatest Superman artists from the 1950's and 1960's was born only 12 blocks away. I was surrounded by my idols. So, from this neighborhood, I grew up drawing cartoons for fun, I eventually worked my way into becoming a full time cartoonist, a job I had dreamed of all my life.

My wife (co-author) Angie, and I, now teach cartooning to thousands of students in schools and art centers throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin. Everywhere we go, we see aspiring cartoonists with a genuine passion for cartooning, and we delight in their discovery of the right lines and shapes. We did everything we could thing of to include this basic learning in the book and still make it fun to use. I still have fun drawing cartoons, and I hope that this book gives others a chance to enjoy some of that same fun.
