2 out of 5 (1 rating)


There is an entirely new look in comics and animation today, characterized by ultra-cartoon-y, retro, and highly stylised drawing style.

This is the new face of cartooning as seen in such popular TV shows as Sponge-Bob Squarepants, Dexter's Lab, Kim Possible, and The Fairly Odd Parents.

Millions of fans of these popular TV shows watch them avidly, often solely for their zingy, stylised look and hip visual jokes.

Now there's a drawing book just right for everyone who admires that quirky style, CARTOON COOL.

Top-selling author Christopher Hart shows beginning cartoonists, retro fans, and all other hipsters how to get that almost-1950s look in their drawings.

His trademark step-by-step drawings and crystal-clear text are sure to make Saturday mornings more creative!

Review by

This is a book about how to draw the retro cartoons. I was a bit disappointed because I thought it would include more than it did. Nonetheless, it is a good buy and will teach you how to draw a few characters.
