I am a massive Simpson fan as well as a cartoonist, and this book has proved invaluable to me.
I used to have the old thin book from years ago that showed you the basics of drawing the characters, but this is a far more in depth approach and shows you how to draw characters from different angles and in different settings and outfits. It also goes beyond the Simpsons family and shows you how to draw a select few of the other Springfield citizens.
You don't have to be excellent at drawing to benefit from the instructions, because with each and every character you are first shown the very basics, before moving onto the more advanced stages step by step so you aren't left behind.
If you're a Simpsons fan but not really into drawing, there's still loads for you here, such as insider info from the creators and animators. The book is beautifully presented, and I recommend getting this hardback copy rather than the paperback because several pages include flip down tracing paper sheets so you can see how The Simpsons go from weird line sketches to the finished article, and they're easier to see in the hardback. As always the pictures are of great quality, printed on high quality paper, and the whole thing is just fantastic!
If you buy this awesome book, I doubt you'll be disappointed!
