You’ve seen him in the comics and on T.V. You know that he can eat a pound of pasta in five seconds flat and that he endlessly tortures his clueless canine sidekick Odie. Now you can learn to draw the mischievous fat cat, Garfield, his geeky owner, Jon, and the rest of the gang with How to Draw Garfield and Friends. This colorful 32-page book provides clear, step-by-step instructions for drawing the lasagna-loving feline and his pals in a range of poses, including standing, sitting, sleeping, and, of course, eating. Artists will also learn how to draw a professional comic strip and many Garfield “sound” effects for a truly purr-fect artistic adventure.
