The name George Trosley may not be instantly recognizable to many motoring enthusiasts, but his work certainly is. Over the years, people have become familiar with George Trosley’s work through the magazine pages of CARtoons, Hot Rod Cartoons, Street Rodder, Car Craft, Popular Hot Rodding, Super Chevy, and many more. His Krass & Bernie cartoon ran for many years as did a “How to Draw” column that is the basis for this book.
In Trosley’s How to Draw Cartoon Cars, he takes you through the process step-by-step of drawing your favorite cars, starting with the basics such as profiles, point of view, speed, attitudes, custom graphics, and coloring. You learn to draw components including wheels, engines, and accessories. Then you are treated to step-by-step lessons on many different body styles: Corvettes, Mustangs, pickup trucks, off-road trucks, muscle cars, hot rods, and a few race cars as well.
If you are a budding artist, closet cartoonist, or just want to learn how to draw your own hot rod or muscle machine, this book shows you how it’s done. Trosley is one of the best in the business today, and this volume will be a great addition to your automotive or art library.
