Serious Make-Believe

Epic Thursday: Reptile Basement

This is real!

Last week, a little first grade boy asked me this, for real for serious.  It might be because in California it’s common to have classes in bungalows on elevated foundations with a crawl space under them, and little boys have a nasty tendency to scare the crap out of their friends with made-up scary stuff that can’t be proven with evidence.  In any event, I checked in to make sure he was serious and he was dead serious.  I assured him there were no alligators, but I thought wouldn’t it be cool if there were?

I skipped Epic Friday last week, so I thought I’d pop this a little early this week.  Also, Pearl Paint is having a sale on Prismacolor Pencils and I have so many new colors now, I just had to try them all!!!

Epic Friday: Teddy is Taking me to School Today

It’s Epic Friday! These days can be for fantasy comics or child-like wish fulfillment.  So today I wanted to draw a picture of something really cool – my childhood teddy bear growing giant and carrying me to school! (Actually this is a hybrid of my bear and my brother Mark’s bear.  His bear had a round body like this, but stubby legs.  My bear had long limbs, but a beat-up not-so-cute face.  So I took the best of both bears.)
Yes, that is a Crayola Crayon sky! It’s a color called “robin’s egg blue” from the 120-pack.  Back in my day, the alternatives to blue were cornflower and periwinkle, both of which sucked.  Today’s kids: you are lucky!
Have a great weekend, everybody! See you tomorrow for Weekend Kids #5!
