... a cartoon, of sorts. Let me explain.
I'm teaching a class at KSU OLLI, for old people like me, a continuing education course titled "Illustrating a Story." It's a new course where students are encouraged to imagine a series of scenes, then sketch it out, like in a series of cartoon panels.
Reviews are mixed - not a raving success; an entertaining exercise without high expectations for creating a masterpiece but possibly to be shared with family and friends in casual conversation.
'Thought I'd share my "rough draft" story illustrating one memory of a childhood experience.
As a "back story", a neighbor's barn burned down one summer night when I was maybe 9 or 10 years old. Debris from Becker's barn was hauled down to the far end of a field bordering the creek where it would be disposed of, probably buried. My illustrated story begins with me and a buddy and our 2 dogs rummaging through the trash to see if there was anything worth salvaging.
