Up till now, we've been seeing work I did as a kid. Hopefully showing you the evolution of my passions. This will be the last Lost Treasure for the next little while, but it is one of my most favorite projects I created!
Saving up the best for last and here it is - my earliest attempt at writing and illustrating a kids story book. I have to laugh at a lot of bizarre plot points and twists. Go ahead, we will laugh together!
I have reproduced the text below each page word-for-word, in case the old computer text is too difficult to read. I have rewritten it as is, complete with spelling mistakes and punctuation errors. Enjoy!
Adventures of ..... Flat-Foot the Deinonychs
Once long, long ago dinosaurs ruled the earth. There was a deinonychs called Flat-Foot. He had a big claw on each of his hind feet.
One day Flat-Foot went to see if enything was in the mailbox. He levitated the mail to his hand. He ripped open all the mail at once. He opened one with a mark on it. The envelope was a letter from: Torro the Tyrannosaurus rex!!!
It read that a bomb was planted in Sanfrancisus, his home city. Flat-Foot took the earliest ride to Sanfrancisus. He went straight to his mom. There he found a note that said, "Dear Flat-Foot, I will meet you on 15th Death Lane at 2:30am."
At one Flat-Foot dashed out because it was 2:20am. He waited 10 minutes, then saw a spaceship. It landed on a builing and Torro slid down. They both floated into the desert by a tractor beam. There was a huge volcano in the middle of the desert. While Flat-Foot was looking around, Torro jumped up and bit Flat-Foot's back. Flat-Foot ran as fast as he could to the volcano. Torro came and pushed Flat-Foot into the volcano!!!
He fell 10 meters into the volcano. Torro thought he was dead but all of a sudden .... Tery the Pteranodon swooped up and caught Flat-Foot!!! Seeing that, Torro raced to his spaceship and flew to his fortress. Tery and Flat-Foot followed him.
In his fortress there were lots of cages. They hid behind a cage and put Triceratops meat in the cage. Torro saw it, he went inside and Flat-Foot closed the cage. Torro was trapped! Flat-Foot levitated the meat and ate it himself. Torro said, "O.k. O.k. The bomb is planted in the sewer."
