"Sled"

Post by JonS » Wed Jan 18, 2006 1:04 am

Hi all,

Here's the latest story I've been able to churn out. Wanted to have something to do youth, and was awestruck at that huge Calvin & Hobbes collected edition. Nothing rewinds you back to innocence like a sled ride....

..not that I know by experience or anything, I grew up in Texas. Watterson makes it pretty convincing, though.

Tell me what you think!

The last image took it from a very good story to an excellent one.

Haha! What a great lkittle story :D The art is great, with a very lively ink line. I too have to agree: that last panel-conclusion is just perfect. I just love how she's dressign up like the kids, and how she's all scrunched up in the tiny sled :)
Excellent! A very enjoyable read in every way.

It's great how you can mix so many different themes in one story... All works like a charm.

That was great. Man, I've done that... only without the whole, you know, getting good at missing the rocks part...

A child's imagination is a mystery even to the gods. And quite rightly so. Great payoff.
Have you ever noticed how most of the trouble in the world is caused by people who claim to be trying to get rid of troublemakers?
