Goblins in the Woods

My daughter Sophie and I like to draw with each other.  She seems pretty interested in comics, so I thought it’d be fun to make a comic with her.  Our comic is called ‘The Adventures of Goblin’, and it’s about a little goblin who lives in the woods by our house.

She writes, I draw.  She’s one of the better creative people I’ve worked with, despite her being five years old.

But in this case, the value is the creation itself, not the quantity.  We may never do another strip beyond the three we did this morning, but it was a lot of fun.
