  • This is a wonderful way to teach deductive reasoning to my students. I have always used the recipe analogy but that is not a good visual cue - this will do the trick nicely. Thank you. =]

  • 1. Think you can’t draw? Here is proof you can! If you have never drawn a cartoon character before, this five step tip will get you drawing instantly using only four basic letter shapes. Using the letters S, Y, V, I - follow the steps and start creating the foundations of a cartoon character. You can add detail after drawing the basic shapes and even drop letters such as the Y to create alternative clothing. Shifting the position of the letter Y will adjust the shape of the body and the direction it faces. Stretching the letter shapes will adjust the height and width of the character. The same four letters can provide infinite body shapes. Will it work with other letters? Yes. Will it work with basic shapes and invented shapes? Yes. You can build images on top of letters and shapes or within them. For example, you can experiment with a capital letter L and turn it into a leg and foot by adding shape around it.
