Adventures of Stardude and the Evil Head

Way back in the day me and my friend....I think it was 4th grade, came up with these two characters who were eternal adversaries and were always thwarting each others plans. The Stardudes were beings from space trying to protect the stupid humans from having their souls sucked out by the Floating Head and turned into zombies. The Floating Head was a sorcerer whose body was disintegrated by the Stardudes energy, but his head, which was all that was left of him, was reanimated by the lingering effects of his last spell. Now he's sucking the lives out of all he can in order to become more powerful so he can steal the energy of the Stardudes themselves. Around junior high, we thought it would be fun to make a list of each of their different powers. Here they are!

Drawings from a 5th Grade Sketchbook

So, while looking for an inspirational drawing for a friend of mine, I happened to come upon my 5th grade math spiral amidst my stacks of drawings. This confused me, but when I looked through it I realized why we had kept it: The pages were full of crazy doodles and sketches and, surprisingly, a lot of sequential drawings. Maybe I was always meant to be an animator?? In any case....I think we know why math was never my strongest subject......
