Grade School Ski Art

There was a good year in grade school when I was obsessed with neon construction paper. I used to steal it from class and my teacher finally gave me a catalog to order some of my own (I just got better at hiding the paper since I didn't have a credit card at the time, unless you count AMEX). This was also the year that I went skiing for the first time, got a concussion, and puked the whole ride home. Needless to say, my obsession with neon construction paper and skiing did not last through to present times, but I do have this sweet illustration of both memories that I think I made in second grade? I should have used some cotton for the top of his hat. Dang. And probably colored his eyes. Shoot.
