Walter Foster and "Comics"! 1 of 2

Alrighty, here's another blast from the past and more Walter Foster style art instruction with his "Comics".

Once again with an assist by Hal Rasmussen, Walter's school of art teachin' specifically went after showing us all the tools for cartooning for the comics medium.  Plenty of other artists work contributed to this volume and just like the "Modern Cartoon" seen here the last few days, plenty of my own childhood hours were spent drinking in every intentional ink smear.

Solid stuff!

More tomorrow!

Talk to you soon.

Yet another one that meant so much to me, yet let go in a purge. Wonderful.

Say, Jeff, you wouldn't happen to have a book of cartoonist profiles that was the same size as the Foster books, but not published by him, that had a couple dozen single page bios of cartoonists in the '60s? It had a red, black and white cover, and had photos and bios of Walt Kelly, Charles Schulz, Harold Gray, Hal Foster and a number of others.

What a fool I was to let that go, years ago.

Thomas: WOW! I don't have that one, but it sure sounds like I wish I did!!! I know what you mean about letting things go. A fine line between being a "hoarder" and keeping what is valuable...hard to see at the time.

Lysdex: One more day of this one, then on to a few other art books, though not Walter Foster...they're purty cool!

ps: Never tried that trick, drawing a straight line with brush & ruler before. So simple I could cry !
