"The Art of Cartooning" 1 of 2

Time for more Cartoon instruction, kiddoes!  This time, NOT from a hand-me-down from big brother David's collection, but from a book that was one of me own back in the mid-1970's.  Grumbacher Library's "The Art of Cartooning" designed by Lester Rossin and illustrated by Jack Sidebotham

You may recognize Sidebotham's work (as I instantly did as a kid) from his work on the "Schoolhouse Rock" cartoons.  With the understanding that YouTube will yank these in a matter of weeks, days or even minutes...here's a blast from the past

and another...

Now dig into the lessons!

Talk to you soon!

I think the reasonI was drawn to this one when I was younger, was that it was the only art instruction book illustrated by someone who's work I actually recognized from another medium. Not sure if that's a relevant factor in a learning environ or not, but it worked for me then.

And yes...the reason I always knew my "parts of speech", times tables and the Preamble to the Constitution was 'cause those songs forever echo in mah brain.
