LA CARMINA’S EARLIEST WORKS: CHILDHOOD FUNNY CURSIVE WRITING, ANIMAL DRAWINGS, STORY & MATH BOOKS MADE BY KID.


LA CARMINA'S EARLIEST WORKS: CHILDHOOD FUNNY CURSIVE WRITING, ANIMAL DRAWINGS, STORY & MATH BOOKS MADE BY KID, rare works by cute yummy time author, prodigy writer, book deals at young age, bloggers with publishing contracts

Time for another edition of The Early Works! I’m happy you liked my previous post with surreal and slightly pornographic cat drawings (made by my twisted childhood self). I am obviously an only child: I had a “Go-Go Gang” of stuffed animals piled into a wagon — and I imagined that they went on Kerouac-style road trips. Hollywood’s a hot destination, but why would I want to take trips “to Alberta” and “to see cattle”?

The gang took “fun v.a.c.a.t.i.o.n.s” by three means of transport: cat trailer, pop plane, and whiz car. (Can someone please invent one of these already??) Back then, I imagined I had a husband named “Twinkle the entertainer” and that our baby was a girl dog. Now, I have an earless kitty for a son and my husband is… no comment.

Nerd alert! I took Kumon, the Asian math program. And to make matters more embarrassing, I replicated the format of the daily homework… with questions about cat and mice.

I doodled everywhere — especially in Chinese restaurants. (In the 80s, we didn’t have Gameboys you know…) Here’s a “mirror drawing” remnant with images that belong in a mental institution.

Finally… my first cookbook wasn’t Cute Yummy Time (out October 6th… ahhh!) It was something I wrote on Post-It Notes in the old days. Wow, my spelling sucked; I spelled “chochocolate” like a stammerer!

    Hmmm “sea attle”…. Maybe it was “Seattle” instead of “see cattle”? XD

    Haha all those old drawings and books are great. I love to look back at what I wrote as a kid and laugh at the crazy ideas I had. Though I don't think I ever came up with such a funny story as having a baby in the north pole. I guess you have always been a very creative person. ^_^

    This post is KILLING ME WITH THE CUTE. :D :D :D

    I hated Kumon so much that I created a cheat system… I saved the old tests and copied the answers, and also got my hands on a teacher's answer book…. hahaha.

    Only child… parents keep everything… I do the same for Basil Farrow… haha

    haha so cute! lol
    I used to write little recipes on things too, although my spelling was weird because when I was first learning to write things, the school had me right with symbols over top of certain letters to help show their sound.
    so some A's had dots over top…some had little swoops…it just depended on how It sounded.
    It was really hard for other people 2 understand! lol
