Houston Readers Become Cartoonists

Members of the community section of a US newspaper can now display their own cartoons.

The Houston Chronicle has introduced its Cartoon Gallery as a place where readers can use their drawing tools to lampoon the rich, powerful and famous.

Users can browse the gallery as well as email their favourites to friends or recommend them to others on the site.

The feature is proving popular with readers and appeared in last week’s Best of the Web column in Editor & Publisher.

Powered by Pluck, the gallery is included in the Chronicle’s Chron Commons channel where users can also create photo galleries and write their own blogs.
