"Cartoonicize" Your Message: ComicLife!
It's supereasy to use cartoon-icized photos to add va va va voom to your visuals. Of course, you have to have visuals to start with, but let's say you've got some of your own - or you've found some creative commons licensed ones on Flickr that allow your use as well as modification. That narrows it down to millions.
First, go to SeriouslyGreen.org and see how cute and cool their graphics on the opening screen are. Example above.
Second, go to plasq.com and buy ComicLife (available for Mac or Windows) and start adding captions to yo stuff. (There are probably other programs, too; I just happen to use this one.)
Quick and easy.
Third, post away, adding to your site, blog posts, etc. and see if your images get a little viral.
Fourth, let me know how it works out!
