This is excellent! I only wish I'd seen it years ago, it would've done me some good. Did you see the World War II-era U.S. military-issued guide to cartooning that Mike Lynch put up on his blog a few weeks back? It makes the perfect complement to this.
Yes, I did - that's one reason why I dug out these scans and put them up. Another was taking a tour of Warren B's excellent book collection and seeing all the 'how-to' books he had.The Lynch link is http://mikelynchcartoons.blogspot.com/2007/01/handicraft-guide-no-9-cartooning-part-2.htmlAsifa has some similar ones up - http://www.animationarchive.org/2007/02/history-disneys-artist-tryout-book.html
Gee whiz. Well, I gotta link from my blog to Mike's blog now!!!Cheers,Mike
Awesome! Reminds me of those Jack Hamm books.
The best part of this are the instructions on how to draw women...you gotta make sure they aren't ugly! The big "X" across the face of the old lady is too much.
