In an earlier post, I made a passing reference to a comic series I tried to begin when I was… 8? 9? 17?
A long time ago.
I went through several obsessions back in my single digits. Geography/maps; Greek/Roman mythology (also a couple brief affairs with Norse and Tiki myths); magic tricks; cartooning; Crazy Bones. For journalistic integrity, I should say that the last three of those aren’t necessarily in chronological order.
Posted below is the epitome of my cartooning phase. The pièce de résistance, if you will—and it’s my blog, so you better will! This comic is also a survivor of the Tragic Rainfall on Cartooning Folder as well as the Regrettable Basement Flood of ’07. After the TRoCF I moved many of my cartoons into a plastic accordion-style portfolio. The portfolio has many sections, including “Villains,” “Paper! paper!,” and “Other Artists.” This comic was found in “Ready to Sell.”
I hope you find it amusing.
That one must not have been in the TRoCF, but the original (below) certainly was.
This is what many of my childhood drawings now look like. The Water Incidents used to make me very sad, but now I choose to see them as Mother Nature admiring my work and desiring to make her own art out of it.
Nahhh, it’s still sad.
