The Art Of The Cartoonist with Harry Venning



 Me In Action 2

In The Art Of The Cartoonist Harry will be tracing the history of his profession with examples from early practitioners like Cruickshank and Hogarth, to more contemporary artists such as Giles and Schulz, bringing events right up to date with cartoons produced fresh on the page that day!
Yes, Harry will be drawing live. Prepare to hear some tricks of his trade, learn where to put eyebrows for maximum effect, explore the storytelling potential in juxtaposing images and discover exactly what the eskimo brothers said in The Funniest Joke Ever (possibly).








Stay safe and keep writing.
