I was pleasantly surprised by Drawing Comics Lab: 52 Exercises on Characters, Panels, Storytelling, Publishing & Professional Practices by Robyn Chapman. I thought it was just another cartooning how to book. This little book has something for everybody. It’s not your regular cartooning book, there is a sense of passion for cartooning. Robyn Chapman’s guide is an easy read and insightful for cartoonist of any level.
Robyn Chapman has studied cartooning at two of the medium’s finest institutions, receiving her BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and her MFA from The Center for Cartoon Studies.
