This is from the "Famous Artist's Cartoon Course", which is different from the painter's course. Many great cartoonists contributed, and it was a correspondence course, where you would do the assignments in the binder and mail it in. Then the artists who designed the course would judge your assignment - people like Milt Caniff and Willard Mullins! Yikes, intimidating. It was a pretty expensive course, and it's hard to find these days.
You can still get versions of the painter's and illustrator's course from the Famous Artist's Course website, but I don't know if they're the same. They're still pretty expensive! And I don't think they still offer any kind of cartoon course.
These were done by an artist named Joe King (I think).
Check out the text under the drawings. It's funny.
I apologize in advance to my friends at Disney who I've already given these to. Some of what I post here will also come from handouts I've given out at Disney, so you guys I work with that have gotten my handouts will see some repeats. There will be new stuff mixed in too, I promise. I'll do my best to keep everyone hooked.
Thanks again to everyone for all the great comments. Spock Foolish identified the source of that last post. Read the comments for more info. Keep the comments coming! I get a kick out of the enthusiasm, it makes me want to post more and more. I might quit my job and become a full-time blogger.
Some people (mostly on other blogs, weirdly enough) have been ribbing me about posting my own stuff. I keep almost doing that, but it doesn't feel right. I want this blog to be pure - just about learning. I love blogs where artists post their own work as much as anyone, but I feel like this blog should be about the how-to of drawing and story - what I've learned along the way, anyway, and what I'm still learning. The more I learn the more I realize I don't know.
So, anyway, maybe I should start another blog just for my stuff.
Just what we need, another blog to jam into the world's already clogged blog-hole.
