To say I’ve become slightly addicted to bitstripping is the understatement of the decade.  Ever dreamed of turning yourself into a comic strip?  Well with the help of the mobile app Bitstrips, you can.  And I’m going to teach you how!  Keep reading for our easy-to-follow tutorial for creating your own Bitstrip.







Bitstrips is a way of creating a virtual reality YOU.  Yes, like an avatar.  And I’ve recently decided I’m going to live vicariously through my Bitstrip.  She’s going to be adventurous and do all the fun things I want to do!  Because through Bitstrips you can place yourself, and your friends, in all kinds of imaginable scenarios.  These comics have been quickly replacing boring, run-of-the-mill status updates on Facebook.  It’s more fun this way!

Creating a Bitstrip:

Step 1: Go to the app store of your mobile device or the search bar of Facebook and search Bitstrips.  The app is free.

Step 2: Begin creating your avatar.  You can choose everything from face shape, to eyelashes, to outfits, and more to make a whole new cartoon you.

Step 3: When you’re happy with your changes click save!

Step 4:  Choose a comic strip starring you, one with your friends, or even a greeting card!

Step 5:  Search for a theme for your cartoon starring you, or use some of the suggested categories include Good, Bad, and Holiday.




Step 6:  Once you find a cartoon template you like, you can insert your avatar, tag it with a punchline, even create a caption bubble!

You’re done!  It’s so much fun and the possibilities are endless!  Once you become a Bitstrips pro, maybe you can put ME into one of your friend scenarios!  Happy cartooning!
