Howtoons: cartoons for kid creators


I've been always a fan of comics. Back in the day I was all about X-Men, especially the Armageddon series and anything to do with Gambit. Later in life I lived with professional comic artists in Portland, Oregon. That was definitely a life highlight--coffee shop work sessions, late night storytelling, and even some of my own cartoon creations.

In teacher world comics are great too! I wrote a blog a few weeks ago about drawing comics for a psychology unit. And recently I discovered Howtoons which is all about inspiring a spirit of invention and creativity through do it yourself (DIY) comics. This site is awesome--great illustrations, super fun projects, and a mission that is all about highlighting the hero in kid creations.
