Two comic strips I drew when I was 11 years old
Since nobody visits our forum (I’m not particularly sad about that since I’m not fond of moderating forums.), I decided to publish some of my most interesting forum posts on our homepage over the course of the next weeks.
Here you can see two comic strips I drew when I was 11 years old. I was a huge fan of the European Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse comics at that time, but I also liked to read Peanuts, Garfield and Hagar the Horrible. I was maybe better at drawing back then than I am now. I often copied drawings from the comics I read and also created a couple of original comic characters. I rarely drew complete comic strips, though, and my main interest gradually shifted towards PC games and playing tennis. Today, I would be able to post my comics and drawings on DeviantArt, reaching a much larger audience than just my mother. Maybe I wouldn’t have lost interest in creating art with today’s possibilities.
When I was in my twenties, my interest in creating comics grew again. At least a year before the start of Sandra and Woo, there was a feature on Halfpixel.com called Time Friends. Basically, you could insert your own dialog into the empty speech bubbles of the template strip you can see below.
