Be Funky - Create a Cartoon of Yourself

Be Funky is a tool that I was reminded of on Friday when a reader asked me for a tool to create avatars. Be Funky is a simple tool for turning digital photographs into digital comics. The image you see to the left is a cartoonized image of myself and Ernie Easter taken at NECC 2009.

Applications for Education
Be Funky is a simple and fun way to create comic-style avatars for students to use on blogs or other networks. Students could also use Be Funky to create a comic strip by converting and saving images to arrange in a story.
