5.0 out of 5 stars Become a Cartoonist in Minutes 15 Jan 2004
By wicket2005 VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Very easy steps to follow to produce all your favourite Simpson's characters. It really is child's play, my 12 year old produced a Bart in a very short space of time.
A lovely creative book for anyone who likes the Simpsons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but sweet 18 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is basically an abridged version of the character sheets used on the Simpsons show, with a few extra notes inserted, so there isn't much to actually read. The foward by Matt Groening is amusing and has some useful pearls of wisdom buried in it for the budding cartoonist.
The tips given in the book are very good and are a boost to anyone wanting to draw Sinpsons characters, or indeed any cartoon characters as a lot of the tricks and tips can be applied to forms other than yellow people with freakish overbites.
The only real critism I have of this book is that it is too short and scimps on some important areas like body language, prop drawing, construction of hands and the like. The content which is there is very good, there just needs to be more of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool, but I thought it was more fun 23 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
When you want to draw The Simpsons, but don't know how to, this is a good book. But it doesn't teaches you how to start, or tips if things are wrong.
