CREATE YOUR OWN CARTOON
1) CREATE ONE SINGLE PANEL WITHOUT A CAPTION. LET THE DRAWING TELL THE JOKE.
2) CREATE ONE SINGLE PANEL WITH A CAPTION BETWEEN TWO CHARACTERS.
THE CHARACTERS CAN BE BASED ON ANYBODY OR ANYTHING: YOURSELF, AN ATHLETE, A MOVIE STAR, EVEN YOUR PET.
3) USE THE PANELS BELOW, OR IF YOU NEED MORE SPACE USE ANOTHER SHEET OF PAPER TO CREATE YOUR OWN CARTOONS.
