Famous for his best-selling how-to guides on the art of cartooning, Jack Hamm (1919-1997) was a renowned American artist and author renowned also for his work in fiction and non-fiction. His books covered an eclectic variety of topics and his mastery of the written and illustrated mediums made him respected among other creatives in the field.
As a budding artist, Hamm first discovered his passion for drawing when growing up in St. Louis, Missouri. Impressive for one so young, he self-taught the craft before selling his first cartoon to a notable publication when he was a mere 17 years of age. This glimmer of success paved the way for an illustrious career as a cartoonist, with a plentiful selection of magazines and newspapers clamoring to feature his artwork.
Jack Hamm was a prolific cartoonist, but in addition to this, he also authored a collection of books delving into topics, such as drawing, history, biography, and self-improvement. These works included The Art of Cartooning (1954), How to Draw Comics the Jack Hamm Way (1965), and Drawing the Head and Hands (1960). Throughout these volumes, he shared his wisdom on the craft of art as well as his varied interests.
Even today, the cartooning guides by Hamm remain in high demand. Their level of light-heartedness as well as the clarity and precision of the instructions given has made them a go-to resource for cartoonists at every skill level.
