Graphic Novel Workshop

Friday's Illustrator intensive has a graphic novel workshop- I am very excited for this. we had to write 1/2 page or so from a childhood memory. So this is certified 100% true story :



Schnerrrg. Schnerrrg.

It’s so quiet, I can hear the dog snoring down the hall. Is that the dog? Maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s an alien

coming to abduct my brother. I hope they take him and not the dog.

chtick. chtick. chtick..

Boy that clock is loud. I hate that clock - I wanted a Snoopy clock. Mom had to get Holly Hobbie. She

should put it in her room. I wonder what time it is. It’s really dark. All I can see is colored spots

in the dark. They kinda of look like...eyes. Red eyes. Like the Jersey Devil ..like in the movie at

school... jersey dev - I’ll close my eyes now... sleep ...sleep...sleep...

ka-thump. ka-thump. ka-thump.

What’s that?

ka thump. ka thump. ka thump. ka thump.

Foot steps! Big ones. Really big ones...... louder now, coming... from........ where?

Ka Thump. Ka Thump. Ka Thump.

Outside - down the block - near Jenny’s house. They’re big. Dinosaur big. Like on the Land of the Lost.

KA THUMP KA THUMP - Tyrannosaurus Rex!!! Blanket on head - Scotty Dog - you’re the look out!

KATHUMPKATHUMPKATHUMP!

UNDER THE BED - DOWN - DOWN - NOW NOW NOW!

don’t breathe -don’t move - it’s right outside the window and T Rex can see in the dark....... and sense movement.....

got too keep still........

Mom : “What are you doing under the bed? It’s time for school!”

Yup- starts friday. New hotel- not near Penn Station- near Grand Central - I think there's a subway shuttle right? Didn't you grab it after CBIG?

I love the story. I always knew something was under my bed. I would always get a head start and run to jump on my bed so that "it" wouldn't grab my ankles. What ever "it" was.

silly
