Free Draw

You're seven years old. Your art teacher has just handed you a box of crayons with instructions to draw anything you want. It's free draw, and you are only limited by your imagination.

Seven year old Mandy would have drawn rainbows. And flowers, and butterflies, and maybe an imaginary Barbie house. Seven year old Mandy's drawing would have featured every crayon in the coloring box, if not in the rainbow, than in the detailed styles of clothing my free draw characters would be wearing. A Smurf or Cabbage Patch doll may have made an appearance on my drawing.

So what did Dane draw during his "free draw" time last week?

Theoretical futuristic warfare between Mexico and Texas, complete with dive-boming rocketships and suicide bombers.

And smiling paratroopers.

The Texas side:

Please note the grenade-launching soldier in the middle.

And Mexico:

This is what happens when you have a daddy who orders the entire series of GI Joe cartoons from the 1980s.

Gotta go, the school counselor is calling.

It doesn't look so good for Mexico...did you see the look of pure determination on the faces of the outnumbered American soldiers. LOL!

The monochrome thing is worrisome..... He should have used red for the blood....
