Notebook Comics - Part One

Here's a selection of comics drawn on ruled notebook paper. Virtually everybody has done comics and doodles as a school student. These efforts to combat stultifying lectures and asphyxiating boredom are "pure" cartooning, with little editing  -- a mainline to the subconscious.


Most of these are drawn by my 12-year old son, Reid, but I've thrown a few of my own, as well. I really love Reid's glyph style of cartooning. A while back, inspired by ancient western Indian rock art, I designed a few glyphs of my own. On his own, Reid began making his own symbols, and incorporated that into his visual expression.

Next posting, I'll share entire comic stories on notebook paper by the talented Olivia Gibson, my partner's daughter.

And here's a few by me...
