This is suitable for ages 8 and over. Other cartooning guides only teach kids techniques, this one helps them think funny so they can draw funny! Cartoon master Mike Artell presents an entertaining lesson, with lots of laugh-out-loud images to demonstrate every point. As children try out his imaginative exercises, they'll learn why exaggeration adds humour, simplifying details makes a character 'cartoony', and doing the opposite of what's expected is so effective.
Mike Artell has written and illustrated more than 40 books and hosted his own television cartooning show. Each year, he visits more than 50 schools and speaks at a dozen conferences, where he shares his techniques for thinking, writing and drawing more creatively. Mike also conducts innovation and communication workshops for businesses and organisations.
