Oodles of doodles

9 years ago when I was 14 I spent my days drawing futuristic cities on Mars complete with armchairs and hover-elevators.
As I got older the all day doodle-fests escalated. When I was 15 I didn't pay attention much in school... obviously. This was the year I drew a moon dwelling that put the Mars settlement to shame, and wrote my name and band names over and over and over.
It got a lot more intense as high school went on. More to come another day.

Did you ever fill your plan book with pictures hoping that your life would look like what you drew? Looking back on high school, I can see exactly what life looked like through my eyes in these pictures.
