I was doing some more garage rafter scavenging and ran across another piece of my artistic childhood — “Little Leather Riding Hood.”
It’s Little Red Riding Hood told with a motorcycle, a well-meaning wolf and some nunchucks.
The illustrations aren’t bad for a sixth-grader, and the writing earned its share of “interesting” and “very creative” comments from my teacher.

Dude, that's some tough chick! Good sense of motion as she's thrown from the bike. Wonderfully drawn motorcycle, too. Maybe you should consider going back to this earlier style, huh?
It's never quite clear what she's so pissed about, but it's fun anyway…
Nice art, but so far I like the writing even more. It's crisp and to the point, without the usual he saids and she saids in every line — further evidence that a cartoonist is more a writer than an artist.
I can't remember who said it, but I think it's true; basically I leanred to write so I could draw funny pictures.
I think I've always had a pretty decent sense of humor and writing, but refining/crafting it continues to be the hardest part for me.
