RockySox, the rock and roll sock doll


I teach art to 6-8th graders. I have had a passion for creating comics since the 2nd grade. It is then that I started developing my own characters and giving them personalities. I even attempted to get my comic in the newspaper at this early time. Somehow this dream failed. But, it still exists...
So, I am passing it on to my students. We are doing a unit of art about cartooning. I give them a worksheet in the beginning to plan out characters. This is what it is like, only I filled this one out for my own character...

Creating the Character of RockySox
 After I created Rocky, I had to write a song for him to sing...

Then I began laying out the storyboard and getting my ideas together....

after coloring
Rock in the Flesh... or in the fiber.

This is an uncolored version of My comic for RockySox.

I will color it with colored pencils this week when I go back to school... can't wait!
I will soon share some of my students ideas as well for their comics.
One lucky artist will get their comic printed in the Mineola Monitor!
Woop woop! I am so jealous...
