Indians Fish in Many Waters

in art •  last year  (edited)

Indians fish, once upon a time, because they were hungry. A six year old boy drew out this story by himself. Who was this boy? It was me back on Tuesday, the 7th of January of 1992 in Oregon. Indians have to wear their hats.

Indians Dive

They jump off hills into many waters. Started drawing Indians after seeing them at county fairs in Hillsboro, OR. I drew the following ten drawings (comic strip series) when I was 6, a month before my seventh birthday. Drew this, 1992-01-07. Was born in 1985-02-11.

Indians running down a hill in a race.

The Kalapuya Indians must be ninja Indians, jumping on teepees, AKA tipis.

Done Eating. Time to party, happy dance, happy feet.
Happy wife, happy life. Happy fish, happy brain.

Dr. Seuss called, he wants his Whos (people) back.
The people I draw look like clucking chickens.

This is so cool, the fact that you have your artwork from childhood. And it's proof positive that storytelling has been a part of your life all along. Kalapuya Indians is very specific, especially for a child. Do you remember what inspired you to write the story -- or was it a homework assignment or school project?

Thank you and I didn't know the name of those Indians when I was six, but I know I saw them at a county fair. As far as we know, there was only that one group of Indians at the fair. So, I looked up on Wikipedia to get their name. I drew the Indians after seeing them at the fair. That was probably the main inspiration. But I may have also saw Indians on TV, like Tiger Lily, the friend of Peter Pan, for example. But seeing Indians in real life was special. I was homeschooled until high school. I also began drawing ninja turtles as well when I was about seven.

Haha this is cute, good childhood memories. Do you still paint?

I do draw sometimes. But not as much as I did before college. Was born in 1985 in Oregon. Drew this comic strip in 1992 a month before my seventh birthday. I've gone through phases. Early on drew a lot. Around the age of ten, started writing more. Then, started making home video as well, around the age of ten. Also started building things. Started writing songs. A jack of all trade and a master of one, not a master of none, is a motto each person should strive for.

That is even more beautiful and engaging, You had this in you since you were a kid, do not leave something which was given to you by Nature. Any recent drawings or videos in line for uploading?

I have so many things. It may take years to get them all out. Yes, there are recent things and older things. It is an ongoing process. It never ends.

That how it should be, a never ending process.
