OLD SCRIBBLINS

I still gots a ways to go before I finish
my latest sketchbook.

So perhaps it's time to 
revisit an old one:


This hunka papyrus 
is from around
January 1995
to
May 1995.
(That's season six in KND years)

Sketchbooks
like this were
less sketchbook
and more of a place
to brainstorm 
story
ideas.

This particular tome was filled with
blatherings about
Operation: HAIRCUT:


Our motto on KND:


Thoughts on Operation: IT:


A probot:


Love for Bill Peet:


Post-It note doodles:


Meanderings on Operation: ENGLAND:


Comics from the New Yorker:


Notes I took while testing the early demos of 


Notes from a bonsai class:


The search for acronyms:



Clipped musings:


A LOT 
of sketches for
the never-top-be-realized
live-action KND movie:


Samurai:


And the lyrics for the 
sea shanty in
OPERATION: LICORICE


Here's how it turned out:


If you love those journal pages
like I do
then you should all
bow down to the mastery of
director Guy Moore
BG artist Gideon Kendall
and
colorist/writer
Alison Wilgus.

And I love finding notes like this:

Hi Mr. W,

Love these old sketchbook pictures!

I was wondering about something, though? Why did you write "What-Where is it?" in Japanese, on the page shown in the second picture? Or did my beginner Japanese fail me, and I misread your hiragana?

What (or where) is what?

"where is it?"
and
