Best book or free program to teach kids to code?

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.

I've always enjoyed cartooning and writing, and tried majoring in graphic design - which sucked all the fun out of it. I wouldn't say I have an undying passion for it, but I have some talent for it, so what other ways can I put it to use? [more inside]

Examples of teaching drawing or writing in Second Life?

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.

Is there a cheap/free source for super cool, retro-talking heads clipart?

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.
