I was recently pointed to the new web site http://www.comicomatic.com/, which allows you to create simple 3-panel, 2-character comic strips with artwork by Nina Paley. I’ve long been an admirer of Nina Paley’s cartoons, particularly Nina’s Adventures in Santa Cruz, from when she lived here (the series Nina’s Adventures seems to have run 1988–1999, according to her resume, which extends past the time that she lived here). I also liked her animated movie Sita Sings the Blues, which she has now put in the public domain (except for certain copyrighted songs which were not hers). Nina is apparently a big advocate for non-copyright distribution of artistic works.
I encourage people to check out both comicomatic and Nina Paley’s blog.
(And, yes, my sister-in-law was her high-school German teacher.)
