Bean Boopers

I was going through boxes of old papers the other day and burning them in the backyard fire pit. I happened to come across this original. I hadn't seen it in many years and I didn't know I still had it. It's one of the few remaining drawings from my childhood. I drew these two cartoon strips (one sheet of paper--part one on the front; part two on the back) when I was in the 6th grade. I had just started drawing and I was interested in cartooning. I named these original characters "Bean Boopers" and drew them off and on until high school.

The drawings (click to enlarge) weren't bad for a kid my age. Some probably will think I don't draw much better now. I actually had a sense of humor way back then, too. Still, I'm considering revamping the Bean Boopers. I think they might make a good kids book or Flash animation. Maybe I could sell Bean Booper magnets!
