Keel-billed toucan, Ramphastos sulfuratus is a logo-like symbol of the Neotropical seasonal rain forests of Mesoamerica and adjacent areas (and hence a common corporate logo).

We will have a page related to our squirrels art soon.

Another example of an animal of Mayan rain forests as comic book cartoon character

Here is the Mayan Gray fox family, Urocyon cinereoargenteus. Our Mayan animal cartoon characters will tend to be family oriented. So here is the female (mother fox) at the left; two kids; and Father Fox at the right. Drawing by Melanny Celeste Quiñonez Izquierdo, copyright FLAAR 2016. She is first cousin of our lead photographer Sofia Monzon (their mothers are twin sisters).

You can see this native fox wandering around the North Acropolis and Great Plaza at Tikal National Park, Peten, Guatemala.

We are experimenting with different drawing styles and are evolving these styles as we continue to move forward.

Mayan comic book cartoon female characters

Naturally our Mayan animal comic book cartoon characters will have females, kids, grandparents, etc. Our themes are family-oriented, but at the same time we will include realistic aspects of some of the more unfortunate aspects of human society. But our Mayan cartoon comic book Heroes will work hard to overcome adversity and create a better world.

We will provide names for all our Mayan cartoon comic book characters as the cartoons are released. We have in-house names for them already.

MayanToons is a research and cartoon comic book development division within FLAAR Mesoamerica which is an affiliate of the parent institute FLAAR.
