On Drawing Cartoon People

Cartoons can be a lot of fun and lighten anyone's day. I've always wanted to learn how to draw cartoon people mainly to "have a bit of fun with the family."

There are many things my family get up to that should be on AFV but I'd like to capture these moments in cartoons—make them even more funny.

I've visited many sites on drawing cartoon people—some of them are misleading but there are a few really good sites. Am I allowed to mention this site Drawing Pencil sketches where I've discovered some funny cartoons?

Aside from that there are some great drawings that have given me inspiration—and I've learnt how to exaggerate people's features to make them look kinda funny.

I've been looking for a cartoonist job in NYC but they are not easy to find. I've also searched on Craigslist and come up with zulch.

In the meantime I'm trying to build up a decent collection of my work to add to my sparse portfolio. I guess you've got to have something to show other than cartoons of your mother and siblings. Right?

My personal view on this

Know what you can do? Try oDesk which is similar to Elance and a few others. There are loads of cartoon drawing jobs available and you can ask top dollar for a cartoon BUT you have to have a portfolio...possible buyers HAVE to see if you have talent.

When using ANY of these sites like oDesk, check the feedback rating first otherwise you will get scammed (they'll take your cartoon idea and run with it) It has now happened to me twice!

Keep Looking

Hey Jerry

Just keep looking - you'll find a job sooner or later, maybe not in NYC as that is a tough place to get into. Meantime just keep drawing cartoons, you can upload some of them on this site - I think it is about 4 only. But that is a start.

Good luck to you!
