This is a request by me as a member of Toondoo website as I wish I could draw so I could contribute online characters of a Direct Action Team comprising workers, women, children, public places, signs, activist items such as crowds, banners that could be added to in a toon, etc. Everything that is available today for other activities. It would be nice to have items for the most important activity of all, upholding our natural born individual sentient sovereign rights.
Perhaps a character set that included a military clad cop in different assault positions ready and willing to beat innocent sovereign marchers who foolishly believe they live in a free society. 🙂
Idea for this toon was inspired by an email exchange between myself and a fellow Dooer.

Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics was published in 1993, just as “Comics Aren’t Just for Kids Anymore!” articles were starting to appear and graphic novels were making their way into the mainstream, and it quickly gave the newly respectable medium the theoretical and practical manifesto it needed. With his clear-eyed and approachable analysis–done using the same comics tools he was describing–McCloud quickly gave “sequential art” a language to understand itself. McCloud made the simplest of drawing decisions seem deep with artistic potential.
Thirteen years later, following the Internet evangelizing of Reinventing Comics, McCloud has returned with Making Comics.
Designed as a craftsperson’s overview of the drawing and storytelling decisions and possibilities available to comics artists, covering everything from facial expressions and page layout to the choice of tools and story construction, Making Comics, like its predecessors, is also an eye-opening trip behind the scenes of art-making, fascinating for anyone reading comics as well as those making them. Get a sense of the range of his lessons by clicking through to the opening pages of his book, including his (illustrated, of course) table of contents (warning: large file, recommended for high-bandwidth users):
