Cartoon Speech Drawings

Black permanent marker over sketched pencil on ink on 18-inch x 24-inch paper.

These are drawings done by K. L. Todd during a Demonstration speech on Cartooning. Having lightly sketched in the drawings she wanted to do in pencil, she drew them in during the speech with a bold marker as examples on how to use smoothness of line, or sometimes rigidness, and also the importance of feature exaggeration and body position to give the cartoon character a message to convey. She concluded her speech with drawings encouraging anyone who would like to try cartooning to not look back at what they could or could not do before, to not look so far forward that they don’t see what is right in front of them, and most of all to have fun.
