I was leafing through a biography of John Lennon that included some of his sketches and cartoons he drew for a school paper. That guy could draw and his humor was incisive even as a youth.
I think we all have "a cartoon in us". We all love stories whether we hear them, tell them, or as some of us are wont to do, doodle them.
For illustrative purposes (groan) I offer this little guy.
I started by aiming a nose downward...added a few lines for a face and body...put a shiny object on the ground and now we have a seed for a story.
So what's he up to? What will he do next?
