    Artist Danny Green demonstrates how to draw cartoon animals.

    Danny Green: Hi, I am Danny Green. I am an illustrator, a cartoonist and a teacher here at the Gilded Page in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Today we're going to learn how to draw some animals. I'll show you the basics of how to draw a cartoon dog, a cartoon cat, a cartoon giraffe, a cartoon lion, a cartoon horse and a cartoon monkey.

    The only tools you will need are a paper, a pencil, a brush pen filled with ink, some pastels and a paper stump. Before we begin today I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I studied art at Cal State Long Beach and at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. I have done video game graphics and movie storyboards as well as children's book and comic books. So, why don't we grab our materials today and we will head on back to the classroom and I'll teach you how to draw a cartoon dog.
