Description

Mashup Mania teaches young cartoonists to draw a range of imaginative characters in true cartooning style. Children will love pairing up - or mashing - unlikely subjects to create fun, silly characters, as well as learning how to draw and write their own original cartoons.

Featured sections cover silly expressions and awesome accessories that make cartoon creations extra quirky. Projects include a range of wacky characters - from a fish boy and alien professor to an elephant ballerina and robot kitty.

Each lesson begins with a simple shape and progresses to a colorful final piece of art, making it easy for budding artists of all skill levels to follow along.

Mashup Mania teaches young artists how to take their drawing skills from enthusiastic doodler to ace cartoonist through a series of engaging, easy-to-follow step-by-step cartooning projects. Along the way, tips and tricks from a professional cartoonist are included to guide their storytelling efforts, making this book an experience that is sure to create a new favorite pastime.
