In this video, we show you how to get ideas to create cartoon characters, from everyday household objects. For the cartoon drawing demonstration, Tara finds inspiration from a guitar, a wifi booster (or boofer as Sandra calls it) and a lampshade! But you can use any objects you find around you, to get inspiration for your cartoon.
First, walk around your home and garden and take photos of interesting objects. Try taking them at different angles too. Choose your favourite reference photo and use it as a starting point for your cartoon. Sketch out some cartoon ideas based on your object.
Once you are happy with your cartoon sketches, try adding some colour. We used brush pens to colour in ours, but you could use markers, coloured pencils, paint or even create a digital cartoon.
