My name is Christopher Hart, and I am a professional artist and author of many popular, how-to-draw books.
This instructional pad is an exciting, new way to learn how to draw manga. It features the high-quality paper you've come to expect from Strathmore, as well as my cartooning techniques, which are easy to follow - and fun! You'll learn how to draw many popular character types while developing a good foundation in basic drawing.
The first 4 pages of the pad feature the basics of cartooning, followed by 30 step-by-step lessons with space to draw each character. We've even included 8 blank sheets in the back of the pad for practice and creating your own characters.
To help you get the most from this instructional art pad, I've developed video tutorials for 10 of the lessons. You can watch me draw these cartoon characters online. Just look for this icon: in the table of contents to identify lessons with an accompanying video. Go to videos.
