Fun Pages!

Following on from yesterday's post about my version of the 'Smash' Book, I decided to root through my drawers (ooer!) of images to find some interesting bits & pieces that I could stick into the pages of my book.  With an emphasis on 'Fun', I found quite a few cartoons, together with some of my old drawings which I simply had to have to make my first double page spread:
Do you like the cartoons?:
(by the artists who have signed these).

These two 'Smash' pages are very 'me' - you might not know this, but when I was little, all I wanted to be when 'I grew up' (not happened yet!) was a cartoonist! Not just an artist, I was going to be a cartoonist!  I spent many a happy hour creating my own characters and stories.   Which is why even today I still have quite a large collection of old comics, comic annuals and not to mention, every single book of 'Calvin & Hobbs' cartoons that Bill Watterson ever wrote.

I did forget one thing when I made these pages though.  You may remember in yesterday's post I said my version of the 'Smash' book was also going to be MESSY!  Just look how neat those pictures have been stuck in!:
(OOps! But I can still do messy when I want ;-P )

For the pages I've done so far I have used this glue...
with its non-permanent option so I can move things around. Believe me, this is very useful! ;-)

 Thanks for looking and for any comments,
