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 :
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.
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!
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!”
