Comic Strip Dreams...

I have been in love with the art of comics since 2nd grade. It was one of my very first passions. I remember in 2nd grade, I had a friend that was also an artist that lived in my neighborhood. I would ride my bike over to his house and we would work together on ideas we had for a comic. We always hoped to one day make it into the newspaper. We never got too far with trying though, but the dreams remained alive till this very day. I told this story and dream of mine to my kids at school. Then one student just asked... "Did you ever try to get it in?".... I just kinda stood there blank faced and foolish... and said, "No, maybe I should."
So, until I get a comic of my own officially published, I try to encourage my students at school to hope the same as I did.
So, after doing comics with kids for 8 years now, I think it is about time I launch some dreams. So, I decided to contact our local newspaper and just ask. I wanted to see if they would be interested in posting one of the kid's comics in the news. I asked, and my request was granted! Yeahhh! If you never try and ask, you will never know.
       Here are two of my many finished comics I created. I posted these two specifically because they are about the story of the Lost Sock...
Rocky Sox by Me, Tabitha Seaton
