Review : My students’ favorite book!
I had to order an extra copy of “Cartoon Cool” so the students in my elementary school art class could share Chris’ amazing book!
While all my K-5 students enjoy “Cartoon Cool”, I find that my 3rd thru 5th grade kids learn the most about drawing based on Chris’ style and instructions. Simple lines and curves, uncomplicated anatomy and basic shapes for hair and faces, all contribute to successful creations from my budding artists. The retro style is so popular now, and is a refreshing change from all the manga characters of recent years.
Thanks for another great book, Chris!
