Gee whiz, I drew a lot as a kid.

Of all the stuff I've found in the last week, of all the art in my archives, I think I'm digging this lion the most.

Six months earlier, the Huntington Beach Public Library picked my bookmark design for distribution but it's a terrible picture.

I don't know what I was thinking with this picture, drawing my father as some kind of dandy.  And dancing with Snoopy, no less!
What a crazy kid I was.

I encouraged my own kids to draw and we spent a lot of time drawing together. I didn't save every drawing, but I sure have a lot of them.
