While cleaning out a basement cabinet in my parents home, I found a pile of my childhood drawing pads and sketchbooks. I remember my father buying this pad for me; I loved it, carried it everywhere and drew superheroes in it (I was way too cool for cars and trucks). I was blessed with parents who fostered my love of drawing.
I still love this little pad. I'm glad it's in my studio now.
Forty years later and I have a real appreciation for Ed Emberley; a prolific illustrator and artist.
Click here to see a great video about him.
If you don't know his work, seek it out, just amazing.

(Two out of three ain't bad..!)
The easy instructions weren't easy enough for me.... but gimme a break, I was five!
|These cool little instructions are on the inside front cover.|
I honestly could not follow along... besides I was busy drawing "Ameba (sic) Man"!
The above mentioned Ameba Man... I know, I know it's spelled "amoeba"... again, I was FIVE!
A few more of my cast of characters... why did Bullethead have such short arms!?!?!
