Create a cartoon character— yourself or someone new— one facial feature at a time with Leslie Stein. You can pick up a copy of Leslie’s book I Know You Rider from our friends at Bookshop, where proceeds will help benefit The Believer and independent bookstores.
Watch a video of the livestream below, and follow these steps to create your cartoon character.
For this workshop, you will need a pen/pencil and paper.
To draw your cartoon character:
Step 1: Draw eyes.
Step 2: If you’d like, you can add glasses.
Step 3: Draw a nose.
Step 4: Draw a mouth.
Step 5: Create a face shape to fit around the facial features you’ve drawn so far.
Step 6: Draw hair for your character (unless your character is bald!), fitting around the face shape you just made.
Step 7: Accessorize your character to add personal detail. You can use Leslie’s samples, or draw your own. Use your imagination!
