with Bruce Van Patter 2005-2006 School Visits

My visit to Hook Elementary!

I'm developing a new policy about schools which don't allow pictures of students on the web: I'll just post the drawings that I do during the day. So below, you'll find the fun stories we created in Hook Elementary.

The assembly drawings

In this tale, we have a super-model guy who signed up for an ocean ranch thinking he would be their spokesperson. He was unhappy to find out he had signed up to work! So to get rid of his boss, he lassos a shark and gives the rope to the boss. I think the boss likes the challenge!


And in this tale, a lion takes his pet guinea pig to the Great Wall of China -- a wonderful setting! It's winter and cold, just like when I was there, and the guinea pig steals the lion's sneaker to go sledding!


Workshop fun!

Check out these stories:

In Fang's Journey, a dog lives in a city and gets dognapped by an evil family. He tries to escape back to his owners through the park, but has all kinds of problems on his quest. I thought I drew the bad owner to look like Elton John. I didn't mean to , but he just turned out that way.

This was a kindergarten story. We started with a dog who was a knight, but was afraid of everything. He didn't carry a sword, just a stick.

Then he went up against a scary dinosaur. I think this is one of the best T-Rex drawings I've ever done. What is the dog to do? He tries to hit the dino with his stick but his hands are shaking so much, he just tosses it away by accident!

In the last picture you can see how it turned out. The dino is really like a big dog!

I hope you students at Hook had a good time during my visit!
