Cartoon History

Most of the cartoons on the Creative Learning Ideas web site were created between 1995 and 2000 on a Mac SE computer. I've lost track of the number of times they have been converted to different file formats. Starting about 10 years ago I began adding color to the existing drawings and creating new cartoons for Old Testament stories. I originally called the cartoon series Sunny Side Up and every cartoon had the image of the sun above a cloud. The sun and cloud images have eventually disappeared from most of the cartoons (though some still remain) and lacking a better name I just call them Cartoon Devotionals.

I've started creating cartoons for events in the New Testament, but alas, that is another project on my want to do's. If you haven't taken the time to look at the cartoons I hope you will because in addition to the humor there are some heart felt personal thoughts that I hope will bless your life.

Coming Soon

“Coming Soon” can mean a lot of things. Biblically speaking, it could be a day or a thousand years. But “Coming Soon” to the Creative Learning Ideas web site are quizzes for each of the online Bible lessons. They are actually in-work but probably won’t be added to the web site until all of them are complete. So how do I define “Coming Soon”? My hope is to have all of the quizzes complete and programmed by June of this year. But if my “Coming Soon” projection needs to be revised I’ll try to provide an update “As soon as I can”:)

First Thoughts

The Creative Learning Ideas web site has been online for over 5 years. If you are a repeat visitor you’ve probably noticed that the look of the web site changes about as often as the weather. It’s not that I can’t make up my mind, it’s just that I keep changing my mind….really often. One of the purposes of this blog will be to provide a heads-up about upcoming changes and allow me to share some thoughts about the web site, and maybe life in general. The Creative Learning Ideas web site is my outlet for creativity so I’m constantly thinking about things to add that may be useful for personal Bible study or for Sunday school teachers. I’m always open to new ideas, so feel free to share.
