Learn to Draw by Mail!

This dicey selection is what you'd get had you signed up to the Continental Schools Inc's "Cartooning the Easy Way" course in 1959. Included in this plethora of high quality supplies is a "special pencil for drawing" ( as opposed to normal pencils which, as everyone knows, you can't draw with ), a goofy articulated model with very bulbous hips ( a feature of all the finest cartoon characters ) and a "Magic creator of Funny Faces"! I don't know how I've made it this far without these!

For more 1950s art-school-by-mail goodness send a self-addressed stamped envelope to The FLICKR College of Art School Brochures, #1 Internet Way, Cyberspace, 1010011.
