As long as I can remember I have always loved cartoons.

I really could not put my comics down following the adventures of the characters in the “Beano”, “The Dandy”, “The Eagle” and the countless American comics I used to buy then swap with my friends. So it was inevitable that as I was quite good at drawing I would copy many of the subjects and even invent my own.

I am convinced that my early drawing skills were learnt drawing these wonderful fun characters, it has led me on to where I am today and they will work for you too.

Although there are set plans to follow drawing the cartoons shown in these lessons, there are freehand skills to learn. By learning these basic techniques it will greatly improve your overall freehand experience when drawing the more exacting subjects like animals, landscapes and portraits.

With each cartoon, you’ll get a reference sheet where you can copy the dimensions and replicate what you see with the help of the videos.
