More embarrassing art time! I present to you: the magnum opus of my elementary school years.
I have always LOVED cats and spent 1st to 3rd grade (aka before my life was consumed by Pokemon) ignoring the teacher and inventing innovative new cat species. I carefully documented my work in hand-bound books–there was another book like this with more cats, but I can’t find it. Probably lost to all the moving around we did. I’m amazed I still hung on to this thing for so long.
Yes, those are rubber bands holding those sheets of printer paper in place. I made do with what I had.
Not gonna lie, I still think the seal thing is pretty clever.
The text reads: “I do think I should make bigger chairs.”
I was SO PISSED when Latias and Latios came out because Nintendo stole! my idea!! I still hold a grudge to this day.
Bonus art from my sketchbook! This was after we moved to Japan as evidenced by the scrawls in the upper right.
It may be incredibly embarrassing to look back at old art, but it’s still kind of nice to have this relic from my childhood.
