The Comic Strip Artist’s Kit

16. September 2006

Over on The ENGINE, graphic designer Brandon Blatcher has found and generously shared a bit of cartoon history that’s also a useful guide for aspiring cartoonists. It is “TheComic Strip Artists’ Kit” created by Carson Van Osten, the artist who drew and supervised other artists on many of the Disney comic books. It’s a series of 11 x 17 drawings describing common challenges in panel layout and how to deal with them.

You can see an overview with individual scans of the pages here, and download a .pdf file containing all the drawings here.
