When I was a kid I had a sketch blog, but no computer or internets. I recently dug up about 3 sketchbooks from my younger years ( about 8 to 13years old),and decided to post some old old drawings. When I was 8 I already loved Looney Tunes was heavily influencded by Chuck Jones cartoons. About that time I saw Who Framed Roger Rabbit and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. When I was 10 Tiny Toons came out and again I was influenced. Most of these sketchbooks had cartoon animals after cartoon animals (mostly rabbits). When I was 12 I got into comics and all those sketchbooks were filled with failed attempts at drawing Spider-man and Wolverine.

I was about 9 I think when I drew these two characters. I remember being very satisfied with how they came out. It's probably because they were in color.
I used to draw a lot of thes kinds of pictures. They all had a story told in one image, and I would pack it full of characters and things going on. Just WAY too much stuff, even more than these two pictures. I was about 9 when I drew the one with the dog getting run over by a car, and probably 8 when I drew the stinky cat picture (the mouse at the top is dead from the smell of the cat. That's right the cat was THAT stinky).
Here's a drawing I did of the food chain. Or at least my version of the food chain at the time. I think I got a little off topic by the time I started drawing the top of the picture. It might be hard to see, but I have the dog at the top of the food chain but at the bottom of the page. He eats the cat. The cat eats the mouse and the bird. The bird eats the bird seed and the mouse eats the cheese. The cheese comes from milk thats comes from the cow, who eats the grass grown from the sun.I was about 9 or 10.
