On A Side Note: Cartoon Drawings Find a cartoon from a newspaper, magazine, or computer. Cut around the edges of your cartoon so the edges are straight. Use a ruler to create a boarder if it doesn’t have one.

On A Side Note: Cartoon Drawings After you cut out the cartoon : Glue your cartoon to a white sheet of paper – in one of the corners, but not right against edge. like this…

On A Side Note: Cartoon Drawings Use a ruler to measure the length and width of your cartoon in centimeters and write it on your paper – near your cartoon. Yours may not be 5cm – this is just an example. 5cm

On A Side Note: Cartoon Drawings Now you can draw! You do not have to know how to draw to do this. The grid helps you with spatial relationships… Draw the new picture one square at a time. Notice spatial relationships here and it will look exactly like original.
