Have you ever noticed that almost every object you can think of has been brought to life in cartoons? Here's how to do it.

You will need:
  • Pen
  • Paper
  • Felt Tips
First draw out any inanimate object. It can be anything you like - Neil drew a pencil and a paintbrush.
Then add living characteristics and features, like a face, arms and legs.
You can even use specific parts of the object as bits of the face!

For example the brush part of the paintbrush can become a beard!
Once you've brought them to life, colour them in.
This technique will work with any object.

Try it yourself!
