About Jim Weicherding
When Jim entered grade school the teachers would pass out copies of Jim’s cartoons & artwork to the classrooms and would even read his short stories to the kids a couple of times a year. Jim was first published at the age of 9 in a school publication that went citywide into grade schools in St.Paul the year he moved to Rhode Island. When Jim entered High School his artistic talents were used on many levels for the students and faculty. He was always asked to create and illustrate regularly in school.
In the mid 1990’s Jim would find himself creating cartoon characters for child safety in newspapers in Rhode Island and then for child safety advocates and organizations that were searching for creative ways to help keep kids safe.
Buckleupallofus,The Fearless Dino Protector Squad, The Bus Stop Kids, and the Lil’ Skipper & Clam Cakes Cartoon Characters are just a few Intellectual Properties Jim has created for teaching kids about their safety and also raising awareness. Jim has received many awards and recognition for his dedicated creative contributions in regards to injury prevention and child safety. His talents have been, and continue to be, utilized by many local, state and federal child safety advocates and organizations.
Jim donates his cartoon characters as coloring cartoons and pages to police departments, fire departments, non-profit organizations, child safety advocates and media groups to be featured on their websites for kids and their families. That list continues to grow. Jim’s cartoon characters for child safety are also featured in tens-of-thousands of coloring books that are passed out to students into grade schools each year to help educate them about their safety. The characters are featured on safety tip items and products for kids and displayed on giant billboards to remind kids and families to be safe.
