Education: How To Be A Cartoonist In 16 Easy Pages

Armed Forces Cartooning Brochure

Yesterday, one of Animation Resources’ most faithful friends Sherm Cohen stopped by with a contribution for our collection of vintage cartooning courses. It’s hard to imagine packing a whole course in cartooning into sixteen 4×6 inch pages, but this pamphlet from WWII attempts to do just that. There’s plenty of GI type humor in here… I’m sure the suggestion to sketch the anatomy of the men in the shower was made with tongue firmly planted in cheek! There’s a lot of fun drawings in here. Enjoy!
