Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice
by Ivan Brunetti
741.5 B835c Greenfield Open Stacks

In Cartooning, Ivan Brunetti gives both the novice and the experienced professional new insights into this popular yet little understood art form. Designed as a 15 week instructional course, Brunetti touches upon the technical aspects of comics, but also goes behind the surface to show the emotional possibilities of comics, and how those emotions can be communicated through the combination of drawings, panels and words. Most importantly, Brunetti helps to provide an artistic rationale for cartooning, and why it is a form of art making worth pursuing.
