There's big money in cartooning and enormous markets, so says the Cartoonists' Exchange booklet titled HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH SIMPLE CARTOONS. This is just one small part of the correspondence school ephemera, which encompassed lesson books, as well as devices to create jokes and characters (the Comic Character Creator and the Laugh Finder).
As the HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH SIMPLE CARTOONS booklet will tell you, here are the principles that all successful comic strips are based on, editorial cartoon techniques, chalk talk information, caricature, proportions, realistic figure drawing, the "three steps in developing a cartoon sketch" and so much more. This is copyright 1949 The Cartoonists' Exchange, Pleasant Hill, OH.
