Video: Behind the scenes of the Astro Boy anime (1963)

Osamu Tezuka's iconic Astro Boy TV series premiered on New Year's Day, 1963. (First episode below.) By some accounts, the cartoon was watched at its most popular point by 40% of Japanese people with a TV. I love watching cartoonists draw familiar characters and the above behind-the-scenes footage from the Astro Boy production is a real delight. (via r/ObscureMedia)

Review: ArtPose

As an artist, I’ve often run into poses that are challenging to draw. And chances are, if you’re reading this post, you’ve had a similar experience. Oh sure, I’ve looked up poses on the Internet. I’ve also made my own references with my iPhone. But both methods are often cumbersome and impractical. And what about those ultra detailed, fully articulated figure models for artists? They are expensive and small. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an app that would allow artists to study and pose a v...

Six Ways Thinking Like a Cartoonist Boosts Your Content Marketing

It’s no secret—I am a humor nerd. At 8, my first class presentation was on one of Hollywood’s first comic stuntmen, Harold Lloyd! As a marketer, storyteller and performing improviser, I love anything that makes me think and laugh. That’s why I love cartoons so much. We all do. If you’re human, anyway! You can say so much visually and with a simple caption and make people think, laugh and feel. And humorous content is some of the most shared content online. What I know from the improv and comedy...

A classic instructional cartooning book

It’s easy to like cartoons. It’s hard to draw them (at least something better than stick figures). Sometimes the best cartoons are drawn out of basic shapes and lines that look easy to draw by anyone, and yet it takes genius to draw like that. And genius is the word I use to describe the author’s drawings and teachings in this classic book. Read the rest

You don't need drawing skills to create powerful images that amplify your content

.default #content .node-body img.clear { float:none; } Across the social web, organizations are discovering the power that the right image - including an apt cartoon - can lend to your content. And there’s never been a better time to not be able to draw. Okay, let me back up. It’s not that it doesn’t matter how well something is drawn, or how visually attractive it is.
