Drawing It Out

From Italy to the South Side to Columbia, Ivan Brunetti's journey has been nothing if not filled with comics, drawing, and design. Responsible for two Anthologies of Graphic Fiction, he's back with Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice, a book dedicated to parsing out the art of comics into interesting, manageable, appealing and funny pieces. Take a look at what it's all about here, and have Ivan guide you through making of a single-page cartoon.
