Created for those of you with an artistic urge but don’t know how to develop their creative confidence, and those who believe ‘I am one of those people who just cannot draw!’
The Creative Cartoon Club website is a fun, funny, educational site. All about cartoons and cartooning. Cartoons and cartoonists. How to’s and how not to’s… and more and mores…!!
Why do we call ourselves the Creative Cartoon Club? Simple:
In the normal art class you are asked to draw a vase of flowers. It requires a lot of experience and knowledge to get it to look anything like the vase of flowers. You lose confidence and never pick up a pencil again! What a dreadful waste of potential talent!
Creative Cartoon Club asks you to draw the vase of flowers using a fun, distorted ‘cartoon’ style. There is no right or wrong proportion, relax and enjoy.
So we concentrate on drawing and painting cartoons, because they are fun to create, giving you more confidence and satisfaction. The more confident you become, the more you create, the more you learn, the more you relax and enjoy.
As your cartoon drawing skills progress we try out different gags and situations, learning how to create a sense of visual humour.

As your artistic skills develop, so does your creative imagination, together with your confidence. So too will your interest in all forms of art.
‘An artist is born’
