It's all a bunch of Croc
The story behind the story:
Several years ago my husband and I had a huge fight.
I was just about to call it quits. Then the arguing stopped
and we didn't speak at all.
One morning I found a little drawing on the back of my daily calendar - and the rest is history!
Here are a few more pictures of the early days.
Sorry, the scan-quality is rather poor, but you can make out the little ducklings in front of and the cookie-mouse next to the palm tree.... and Croc reading CROCTALES.
I am currently trying to digitally remaster the pictures. I didn't want to bend the calendar too much while scanning because I am afraid the 10 year old calendar might fall apart, but I still wanted to share at least a few of the early CROCTALES comic strips with you.
....like our "wind powered" means of transportation
Here's the CROCTALES Easter Greeting 2002, with a little color.
Another fond memory:
Gone swimming in 2000, still in black and white, scanned from one of the calendar pages.
After watching "The Mask of Zorro" on video there was the following picture
Sometimes there was a theme like "Lucky Pals"
and "journey around the world" in 2001 for more check out CROCTALES travel
"Winter Sports" in 2001-2002
(here's a little story about Croc & his pals going hangliding)
"Golfing" in 2002 and 2003 including golf fashion and the perfectly balanced golf swing
2003 - book title "just moving in"
all Florida Style with a....
and a space theme with an "Aliengator" visiting in 2007
....or 1999: Cadillac & dream journey.... in early 2000: a very cool Croc reading in front of the pink '56 Cadillac again
Now, going even further back.... to 1996 with a very young Croc, water skiing off the coast of Florida.
Before the CROCTALES series started, it was little drawings on old fax reports, Croc only. No ducklings and mouse, yet. Blue ink was later replaced by black. Croc had a few extra pounds back then... so did my husband .
LOVE is in the water 1996:
Take a close look! O.k. the duck is obvious but check out the fin.....
jumping forward to 2009: Space travel
Tribute to ATLANTIS and part of our mini-series
