Wouldn't it be great if you could draw your own cartoons instead of having to depend on someone else—or worse, buy some ill-fitting clip art?
And what if you can't draw a straight line?

We all say it without thinking about it. When someone says: “Can you draw?”, we answer the question in an almost identical fashion. We all admit, we can't draw a straight line.
Well that's good news, because if there's one place you don't have to draw a straight line, it is in the practice of cartooning. You can draw wonky, shonky, monkey lines—if you have to draw lines at all. And in a few months (yes, just mere months) you'll find yourself far more confident drawing. And strange as it may sound, people will come up to you and ask you: “Are you a cartoonist?”
So can you be a cartoonist?
Is it just an inborn talent? Or can anyone draw? The interesting fact is that anyone can draw and draw well. And you don't have to believe me. You can go to any school on the planet and find a class where there are five-year olds.
Walk into that class and ask the class: “Who can draw?” And watch as every single hand goes up. Then if you have the chance, go back to that class after ten years, and ask the same question. And only a hand or two goes up.
So what's happening? Did everyone lose their talent? No they didn't. At five, every child knows how to draw and knows nothing about maths, history and science. At fifteen, every child knows maths, history and science—and has forgotten how to draw.

You can be five years old again and have a blast! And interestingly you'll start drawing like a five-year old but soon progress to the state where people will indeed come up to you and ask: “Are you a cartoonist?”
