MY CHILDHOOD ARTWORK

My dad saved boxes full of art I made as a kid in the 70's - early 80s.

It is in the May.
It is outside. 
It is about animals. 
Pretty scary coiled cobra, right? This is the flipside of my earlier post, The Marvelous Mud Washing Machine.

Fingerprints fight to the death in space. 
With a pen and a little imagination you can make anything into a depiction of war. Note the sweet gun on the left and a War of the Worlds-looking turreted walker thing. The layout seems to come from the videogames I liked at the time, especially sidescrolling space games like Scramble and Moon Patrol. 

PS please don’t use these prints to make a rubber finger and implicate me at a murder scene.

SLX4
The SLX4 is somewhere between a secret hideout, waterpark, campground, and the Yellow Submarine. 

You can see a major development in my drawing ability here; the stick figures have knees.

Star Wars book 3

Another tiny book, this one is about 3”x4”. Observe the battle between an X-wing and a TIE fighter over the Death Star.

As for the characters, I’m just going to call it and say that’s Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, and Chewbacca.

Line Backers VS Sweat Hards 
Any resemblance to actual football gameplay is purely coincidental.

Star Wars book 2


This little book is about 4” square. The characters are a little hard to identify since unfortunately I didn’t label any of them, but I think I can spot Luke’s home on Tatooine, Chewbacca, the Sandcrawler, a couple droids, a landspeeder, and a TIE fighter.

May the Force be with you. 

The end. Is it bad that my favorite book is one I made when I was 6? 

Up next: another Star Wars mini-book!

Chewbacca and Han Solo portraits.

C-3PO got majorly dissed here. Chewie is super cute though, what an adorable bandolier.

Luke and R2-D2 portraits. 
I really like these little end credit pictures at the end of the book. Maybe I should try cleaning up Luke’s face a little, he’s all smudged with R2 graphite.

A Stormtrooper.
Fight above Death Star.
I like Luke’s awkward X-Wing battling it out with Darth Vader’s TIE fighter. Something about the bent panels on Vader’s ship made it seem extra badass.
