Simon's Sketchbook Sundays
Si showed me his new character the other day. I think his name might be Joe - and he likes pie... but that could just be a specific reference to some private joke I'm not party to.
Si says that this new character was a hit at school with his friends, who immediately started copying Joe into their own school books. He has that effect on people.
Si will create a new character and start drawing him everywhere, refining and improving him. Pretty soon he's incorporating his latest guy in school assignments - as seen in this recent effort- a poster assignment in Health Class.
At this time of year, when the windows of parked cars we pass during our morning walk to school are coated with moisture, Simon will stop at every car and "tag" them with his latest character. I often wonder what people think when they come out to leave for work and discover "Joe" or some other wacky Simon creation on their windshield.
I hope it brings a smile to their day!
