Those cartoons

Posted in C-boy tagged , , at 9:10 pm by Tricia

i finally got into C-boy’s classroom on Friday. A gang of boys were playing “POW” (the D&D style game they made up) during the Halloween party. I asked if the notebook he was recording info in also had the political cartoons, and he granted me a few seconds to look at them before he returned to recording moves. So here they are, the political cartoons previously mentioned. (Clearly, penmanship is not pushed very hard at our school!) It came out kind of blurry, so if it’s too hard to read the words are back at the other post (although what I thought were 2 cartoons are actually both on the same page). I’m not sure what the 2nd cartoon is about – I’ll ask again and post an update.

And just to show that C-boy doesn’t limit his artistic endeavors to cartoons on lined notebook paper, here is the pumpkin he carved on Friday afternoon. It got many comments from trick-or-treaters (parents and children), and numerous people have stopped to take photographs.

    That looks like the kind of cartoons mine would draw. Eleven year old boys have an interesting sense of humor don’t they? I love the pumpkins. Did he draw them freehand?

    He did the pumpkins by poking outline holes in the pictures he printed from the internet. That’s what you do with the Pumpkin Master patterns, which he’s used a few times.
