Disney’s Comic Strip Artist’s Kit

From Boing Boing: This fascinating link of Disney animator Carson Van Osten’s Comic Strip Artist’s Kit.

There’s some fantastic advice for the young comic strip creator there. I’d love to see this in print. Many moons ago, I worked in a comic book store (it’s long gone now), and we would get tons of requests for books for kids who wanted to learn how to draw comics. I’d usually recommend How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way for the youngsters, and a Scott McCloud or Will Eisner book for older teens. With the boom in graphic novels, more instructional material wouldn’t be a bad idea.
