I've always wondered how cartoonist create their strips. But I've started to notice that many of them choose simple body shapes and repeat expressions or only use a few settings or locations. Where can I read a straightforward explanation about the how and why of the creative process for making cartoons?

Which brands carry decent non iron slim fit dress shirts for Men (size -14.5 - 32/33)?
I have almost bought every single one I like at Brooks Brothers. Their fit is good but I am looking to shop from another brand so that I have more choice. Also I would prefer to go with a brand that has a good online store (hate going to the mall). Please note it has to be non iron. I am okay with BB prices but wouldn't mind learning about more reasonable options - Thanks!

Having an outdoor wedding in Bay City Michigan the end of June and I am wondering if anyone knows of an effective and safe way to eliminate mosquitoes from the area for several hours? I really want to be sure no pets, people or the environment itself are toxic, I just want the nasty blood suckers to leave myself and the guests alone!

Anyone know of a way to quantify (by region, nationally; individually, collectively; percentages, ballparks numbers, quotes, et cetera) how non-profit theatres are faring, say, from the past year year or two to now, in the pursuit of foundation money? Assiduous though my efforts have been, I need to put my to-date dismal efforts into perspective for myself and soon, methinks, for others. Thanks.

I am working towards starting a non profit/NGO in Kenya to address issues of education, poverty,disease ie HIV AIDS, and leadership with a view of using a totally different theoretical framework in going about the issues. I am currently studying sustainable development in New Zealand and have a small pilot project going on there. I am looking for any partnership from individuals,organisations or companies or any interested parties who could be having similar passion from all over the world. Please provide me with any links, resources or even ideas and am sure this will make a landmark in a country thats really burdened..will be glad to get any kind of advice from you..cheers
