jonasfx requested:

“seeing all the ‘main characters’ in DDGI as small kids of the same age, playing and goofing around.”

Drawing this reminded me that as a kid you drew the sun as yellow, always. I haven’t done that since, haha.

One of my favorite activities to do as a kid was explore the woods or anything related to climbing on shit. One day Bernard, me, and a cousin of ours, Thao, went exploring the woods and we ended up in one of those fields where they set up those huge electric towers. As we were gearing up to explore we spotted a small campsite that some homeless person had built for himself.

After quietly examining it from afar, we all decided to head back home. Still one of my favorite finds as a kid.

Bernard was always a hero to me as a kid and apparently I was quite a crybaby and very clingy with Bernard. Miriam never cried much and she and Connor would always read a lot at the playgrounds. I asked Brad and apparently he was quite a sullen and angry kid.

Hey, remember how in the 90s they babified a ton of shit? Looney Toons babies, Muppet Babies.

Why?

I remember the baby shit of the 90's. That era pisses my baby-boomer mother off to this day (':

Brad needs hugs.

Ha! My sister and I loved exploring too, but we would trek our desert instead of a woods. She loved climbing, but I was the eldest and responsible for stopping accidental suisides, so I didn't get as much out of it.

I have a story similar to your homeless camp, with a little bordertown flavor thrown in. Once when climbing on a crumbling cattle auction pin when I was about 10, we came across the pack of an illegal immagrant. We hightailed it out of there, never told anyone. Either we were that afraid of being caught in the pins (we weren't supposed to be playing there since they were, you know, falling appart in large child smashing hunks)or had been told too many horror stories about what the cartel does to young white blonde girls. Either way, that was the moment I realized that the actions I take, be they noble or cowardly, shape the lives of people I might not even know. What would that persons life be like now, if we hadn't kept mum?

Anyways, it's something I hadn't remembered in quite a while. Thanks for reminding me. :)

@IEatTacosForDinner: Ok, you can hug him.

@THEAuthor: Wow, that's a great story, haha. You ever hear of those border towns where some houses actually ended up on the wrong side of that ridiculous fence that Bush made on the Mexico/USA border?

Oh, hey! That's great. Haha.

@roxjey: What, hey. I was fine with most bugs, hahaha.

@daviddoesntgetit: Ha! I hadn't but it doesn't surprise me. Pretty much every town on this side has a corresponding town across the border, and they aren't all clearly defined, some of them are feet from each other. I know places where US citizens have been injured or killed because the bullets someone shot in Mexico didn't go through a checkpoint. Apperently the fence isn't bullet proof. XP

@THEAuthor: Whoh, what the fuck. That is ridiculous. Hahaha, god. That fence is laughably absurd.

Speaking of things, Connor showed me a series of photos of the fence on the border at different points I think in National Geographic. It was quite a beautiful photo series, Connor's only interested in photojournalism though, haha.

talking about cute... hehe. this made for an interesting picture :)

and I can totally relate to the exploring thing. to this day, my favorite places are rocky places, deserts and snow covered landscapes. just last weekend I think I drew two friends nuts jumping around on rocks on the coastline. I always prefer walking on rocks if I see one. unless it's raining hard ofcourse. but I've gotten all of that from the environments I've seen when young. the exploring or as some say: getting lost is more recent though. I think it's just a nice feeling to get away from the normal routines.

MIRIAM: I found a stale macaroon with hair on it! Let's make David eat it!

CONNOR: Hells yeah!

DAVID: Eww! No way!

BERNARD: You should totally throw it at that hobo. Then I'll hit him with my stick.

@daviddoesntgetit: Oh wow, I'll have to look those pictures up! They sound fantastic.

The interstate going through El Paso TX is about thirty feet from Juares (pronounced whar-ez) Mexico. You have towering glass buildings housing the USA's prosparity on one side of you, and hills covered with broken homes, stacked on top of each other like piles in a landfil on the other. It's a site to see, I tell you.

EDIT: HAhahaha! Those pictures were great, and the fence was... actually impressive! We got chain link and freaking barbed wire! XD
