It’s Epic Friday! These days can be for fantasy comics or child-like wish fulfillment. So today I wanted to draw a picture of something really cool – my childhood teddy bear growing giant and carrying me to school! (Actually this is a hybrid of my bear and my brother Mark’s bear. His bear had a round body like this, but stubby legs. My bear had long limbs, but a beat-up not-so-cute face. So I took the best of both bears.)
Yes, that is a Crayola Crayon sky! It’s a color called “robin’s egg blue” from the 120-pack. Back in my day, the alternatives to blue were cornflower and periwinkle, both of which sucked. Today’s kids: you are lucky!
Have a great weekend, everybody! See you tomorrow for Weekend Kids #5!
In 2008 a colleague’s son named Max Altschule was two. He had a stuffed bunny. An adult asked him, “Who are you voting for?” and Max replied, “Obama, but Bunny’s for McCain.”
This comic is inspired by that hilarious story.
Max is six now and no one knows who he’s voting for this year.
As always, if I use your idea in a comic I will give you the original. Thanks Max, and enjoy your comic!
