Anyways I thought I'd share with you all what I shared with them. I made miniature Pokemon cards. I remember spending hours on this. Actually, during my childhood, all the neighborhood kids spent summers drawing comics and making miniatures.
Here's a detail shot. I used a 005 micron pen to draw the tiny lines.
We also made little medallions out of scraps from a hole puncher. Mum bought the finished medallions from us, but we had to give her 10 medallions per payment and there couldn't be any repeats. (Good one Mum. I'm sure you had the most peaceful summer when you thought of that.)
There are 109 face up medallions in this picture. We were quite industrious.
We had little jelly roll pens at the time, and boy did we use them.
It's fun to see how into Pokemon we were. It inspired quite a bit of creativity.
