A Child's Sketchbook From the 1980s, Preserved For the 21st CenturyS

From 2012, let's take a trip back to the 1980s, and what it was like to be a kid drawing the stuff you were into. Some of the images you're about to see are ostensibly part of "schoolwork", others drawings scribbled in the rear pages of a book where there was supposed to be stuff like maths problems, but are instead just giant drawings of Voltron.

I know this and can show these because they're mine, given back to me by my mother over the weekend after she'd done a spot of tidying up of the old family home. They're all from either my time spent in Kindergarten or the First Grade, and come from my maths (or, for Americans, math) book, my religious education books, my spelling books and what look some kind of series of "shit I liked over the weekend" pieces.

It's a fantastic look back at what was awesome to a five year-old kid in the mid-80s. There's the obvious, like Transformers and Star Wars, but it appears I was also maybe a little too into He-Man, Knight Rider, MASK, Ghostbusters, Batman, Robotech, Inspector Gadget and what looks like Knight Rider.

If you're on the edge of your seat about the conclusion to my gripping Centurions fan fiction, sorry, the page was wrecked after the first sentence of the second act, so the fate of my rather abrupt encounter with Ace McLoud remains a mystery.
