Last night at dinner, my Dad and I were looking at Sofie's drawings and marvelling at how good she is, as always. Then I remembered that there were a few preschool pictures in the big box of stuff my mom saved from my childhood, so I ran upstairs to dig it out and see if we could find anything to compare.
There wasn't much in there from earlier than kindergarten, but I think this might be a preschool picture:
Based on that I'd definitely say Sofie is a better artist than me. I think I was four when I drew this, and she's already doing much more detailed stuff.
Then we found a lot of other funny stuff. Like this book of ghost stories I put together in something like fourth grade:
I also included book review blurbs on the back cover and an "About the Author" blurb inside the back cover, with a space for my picture! Ha. Funny stuff:
Then there's this fine piece, entitled "The Numscult King." I believe that's supposed to be numbskull.
Why does he have a little bag of money? Is he trying to hire new wise men?
And apparently I had something for pigs, because here's a picture I drew of the Justice League in pork form:
Subtitle, which I cut off in the scan - "Protecting All Those Who Oink." Batpig, supersow, aquapig, wonderpigwoman, and an unidentified fifth hero. I don't know why a viking is fighting an indian over on the left. Or why his dragon shield seems to be in love with him.
I lovelovelove how my pig wonder woman has a little caption saying "Great Hera!" Hee.
