This book is a treasure. It’s a look at the methodology of cartooning with thorough details on the how and why a cartoon contains certain elements and the reason(s) why they are arranged in a certain way. You go through the actual thought process of a cartoonist making up an image. This includes any changes, rejects, tangents and abstracts which crop up along the way. It’s like sitting right across from a live person who is telling you what they’re thinking as they draw.
Great insisghts, helpful tips and wonderful visual examples make this a must for any would-be cartoonist’s collection.
