    All their friends were artists, cartoonists, and writers.
    artists Noun

    Shaw remembers spending much time as a child drawing train wrecks, battles and maritime disasters.

    Besides his interest in painting, Shaw also became interested in film-making and ceramic sculpture.

    Re: Identifying basic sentence parts

    You may want to try working out these again:

    His father worked as a cartoonist for Walt Disney and his mother was an artist, too.

    Shaw remembers spending much time as a child drawing train wrecks, battles and maritime disasters.
