Comic Strips: A Brand New Year


 

With the start of the new school year comes a new group of children.  Most of the children in grade 5 I have known since kindergarten as in past years.

As with the previous years, I just drew the grade 5’s for the comic.  Many of the younger children complain saying why just them and not us.  I tell them, if I used every child in the school, for the comic, I would never truly finish.  It is a big job trying to draw and create comics with just the grade 5s, imagine an entre school.  Besides, they are about to graduate to middle school and hopefully they can have a positive memory of their time here.  The same can be said for this new group of grade 5’s.

The inspiration for this comic came from the fact that now with technology so readily available, even children have phones.  Before children who graduate from grade 5 and then they would get a phone.  Now parents are giving them their old phones at an earlier age.  Even iPods have the option of texting if you have access to Wi-Fi, which the school does.

A brave new world, where information and instant communication are right at your figure tips.  Even for the younger members of our society have this awesome power.  It reminds me of a quote I heard of once.  “With great power, comes great responsibility.”

I just hope they can handle it.   Enjoy.
