The Pocket Cartoon Course guide
Our instructional course was based on the “Pocket Cartoon Course,” a 1940s giveaway booklet from the Snack-Pack Co. from Indiana.
While it was written a long time ago, most of the lessons were useful for today’s up-and-coming artists.
Now the Junior Dispatch offers you this handy guide to the complete course on cartooning, complete with additional hints and great videos!
