Childhood drawings one.

I ran across a book of art that I've done from elementary school up through high school and I thought I'd share select pieces with you.

#1: I was probably eight or so when I drew this. I imagine this is the sort of stuff that Calvin would draw for Hobbes. Here we see two lovely frogs. One with a dagger driven through him while the other is in mid-croak and about to be destroyed by an axe. To my defense, they both look mighty happy about it.

#2: You may look at Rogue Symmetry and say, "Man, has he always been this amazing at drawing hands?" Here is your answer. I was about 13 and I was already mastering those five fingered things.

#3: My teacher's support was evident through her not so cryptic notes on my drawings. She can think my hands can't draw all she wants because I still maintain that she was a swap monster in disguise.

That's all for now. I have lots more to share in the coming months.

Doesn't that sound like a boxer who is really really bad at it? Like he hugs people when he should be countering.
