Welcome to GET IN TOON!
If you have visited this site before you will notice it has been through some changes. If you haven’t been here before let me explain what GET IN TOON! is. GET IN TOON! is my educational blog devoted to the art of cartooning. Whether you enjoy comics, animation, gaming, and more, this blog offers free tips and tutorials on how to go about creating them.
My name is Michael Grassia and I am a cartoonist. Basically, that means I draw humorous images. I have always had a passion for cartooning since I could hold a pencil and at 8 years old I began to take my craft seriously. The rest of my life I devoted to learning everything I can about cartooning. Animation has always been my main love in cartooning. I grew up watching a lot cartoons. If it ran from the late 1970’s to the early 2000’s you can be sure I watch it. I do watch present day cartoons but nothing beats the classics for me.
In September 2017 I released my first educational app “A Simple Guide to Storytelling” which teaches storytelling though the comic strip method. It is available on both the iOS App Store and Google Play for a reasonable price.
I plan to post at least once a week but more if I can. In addition to my posts I will have some free downloadable materials to help your cartooning journey. So stay tooned for my next post. I leave you with the cartoon drawing I did of the FLASH and remember, there is always time to GET IN TOON!
