Looking for an easy introduction to coding for a 12 year old. It has to be something he can do on his own, without much adult input. He loves art, drawing, and creating his own cartoon characters, so visual references are a must.
One of my absolute favorite blogs, Drawn, shut down this week. How do I replace it? What are other good blogs or websites that focus on illustration, cartooning, and animated shorts?

I will shortly be introducing a friend of mine to Second Life. She's an academic, and will be most interested in locations in SL that are related to the teaching of art (especially drawing and cartooning) and the teaching of writing. I would be most grateful for any suggestions anyone might have of locations we could visit.

Where can I find online resources to help me learn to draw like Andrew Bell of The Creatures in My Head? [more inside]
I've got a chance to do a cartoon for our local paper. Our town has 8,000 residents. So anyway, I'm lazy and want to rip-off David Rees' Get Your War On. If I want my own super cool, retro-talking heads clipart do I have to scan it in myself, or is there a cheap/free source out there I can plunder? Many thanks.
