A Missing Cartooning Lesson
You know I've never seen a book on cartooning go into the importance of erasing and it occurs to me that it's a big part of how a lot of cartoonists work. A lot of cartooning is course correction. You get the basic shape and the dialogue balloons in the right place, but then you brush it down with a kneaded eraser or an eraser bag and redraw, correcting as you go. I know it's just a little thing but I thought I'd write it down here before it leaves my brain.
