When I was ill as kid during the Sixties I would draw. Laid up on the sofa I would have a pad of paper and some pencils and away I went! I drew all the time generally but doing it whilst poorly seemed somehow therapeutic.
In this state I can remember at least two of my sick-bed creations.
The first was a comic full of comical sketches and gags. Somewhere in the attic I still have it! Influenced heavily by comics like Beezer, Buster and my older Bros' MAD mags I seem to remember.
The other drawings were detailed pictures of my Hot Wheels, Superfast and Whizzwheels die-cast toy cars. I can remember doing the Matchbox Silhouette distinctly and colouring it in bright red.
They were all drawn on graph paper so I could copy the shapes more easily. Not half bad really! Sadly these have gone to the great shredder in the sky.
Do you recall drawing when you were ill readers? Did you draw all the time?
