I’m working on Week 2 of the Brunetti Cartooning book. This week had three separate but related assignments. The first assignment was a writing assignment with various prompts like, “something you heard in public,” “something you said earlier,” and “an interjection.” I wrote these on an index card cut in half. The second assignment was to draw specific scenes with prompts like, “something abstract,” “the saddest thing you can think of,” and “something you dreamed about recently” on full-sized index cards. Then the third assignment was to put the written sayings with the pictures you drew. We were to play around and rearrange the pairings to ponder the results.
Below are my drawings and sayings, in various pairs. Some are nonsense and some are mildly amusing.
