Summary and Info
I wanted to experiment with cartooning so I picked up one of Steve Barr's books. It was very simple. In fact, too simple. I can't draw anything really but this book was only slightly helpful. I started with his fun objects books. Well, making a hot dog and adding a face is pretty basic stuff. Or a triangle is a piece of cake. Pretty basic, a 5 year old could make this stuff. Not only simple, but the end product is boring.
So, I decided to try his drawing people book. Again, more suited to kids ages 5-9.
There isn't much in the middle ground. The books out there are too simple or way too complicated so this is probably an OK compromise. But you can easily find this book for $2 used---and not used much.
