I am Sixty (((Hi Sixty))) I am addicted to Bitstrip. Yes I have wasted the whole day making comic strips about friends, family and blogging buddies. Bitstrip was launched at SXSW and is an amazing free cartooning application. You make the characters, but Bitstrip will set the scenes, provide the props, make the panels and a slideshow to embed in your blog, or you can email your art.
Implications - Consumers enjoy seeing themselves as cartoon avatars because they feel the illustrations are custom-made to their specifications. This validates their individuality. Corporations can evoke similar feelings from their consumers by incorporating a variety of customizable add-on features to their existing line of products.
