Self-Cartoon as a Kid
This was my submission for Kalia's Draw Off Challenge (I think that's officially it's name, or rather what I've seen people call it most frequently.)
What sparked it was:
When I was a child, I had a big backpack that I loved because it was both spacious and freakin’ orange! I thought it was so cool because nobody else had one like that. I used to think “heh, Im the only kid with an orange backpack!”, whereas my adult self, through the cultured (conditioned) and maimed filter of our fashion and advertising culture, might probably think "shit, I was the ONLY kid with a giant, orange backpack.”
F*ck that adult. Orange backpacks rock.
Is that backpack even orange? I dunno, I’m not good with these color things...)
