Every Sunday, the moment we walk thru G&G Roundy's doors, the kids head immediately over to the newspaper pile and pilfer thru the stack until they locate the Sunday comics. And every Sunday, these same comics make their way home and are then deposited into another pile. I was about to throw a bunch away the other day when I thought I could use them with another sketching exercise with the kids. We each chose a frame from a comic strip we like. I chose "Mother Goose & Grimm" and "Marvin"; Jake chose "Dilbert"; Olivia chose "Blondie" and "Garfield"; Ian chose "Frank & Ernest", "B.C.", and "Charlie Brown"; and Maggie chose "Little Mermaid" (obviously not a comic strip, but since there isn't any kind of Barbie or Princess comic, she grabbed a favorite book of hers and used that to sketch from). Then we spent about an hour on the living room floor sketching. Above is what we ended up with.
