Although today is the day of love…
Our drawing challenge has nothing to with Valentines.
Today we are supposed to draw a cartoon from our childhood.
My favorite was Rocko’s Modern life
It was odd, avante garde, and had a soundtrack from the B-52s- who I can describe in another post had a great influence of my aesthetic.
So it was about this little Wallaby who was learning how hard it was to be an adult. Which is an odd concept for a kids cartoon. But I really loved it, and it showed me a lot of my future was going to be hanging with weird and delightful friends, and not being as rich as the monopoly man.
Too poor to buy groceries.
Too tired of dumb bosses.
Too tongue tied around the person you have a crushy crush on?
Rocko lived it.
Thanks Rocko! You really got me through the real struggles. Just nervously laugh and carry on!
