As I was looking through my notes on comic ideas and such, I found the following.
Did you enjoy it?Â I believe I drew it in 12th grade.Â Maybe the 11th.Â I saved it just for you.Â It’s crumpled up, on college-ruled lined paper and it has something to do with Mussorgsky on it.Â Why? Who knows?Â I could have been in Russian history class!Â I may have drawn it my first year of college because I had a Russian history class there too.Â The back of the paper says “Marius Petipa *missing* school of ballet.”Â And below that: Last symphony Pathetique – full of force and feeling.Â I believe that says “awesomeness” above the guy in going “chomp!” but i could be wrong.Â It had to be high school, but i don’t remember writing my lowercase ‘A’s in that way.Â And i do remember having it ripped my first year at RMCAD because it was in my pocket and i showed it to a couple of people.Â “Why am i here? Lemme show you my credentials.” and i’d whip that slip out and everyone would nod and say “ah yes” and “quite” and such.Â Frankly, I don’t know why they didn’t give me my degree that day.
