When I was a young girl, I would draw pictures for my classmates in school.  I have memories of sitting in my third grade classroom (Allendale School in Pittsfield, MA) during "indoor recess" and having a line of kids waiting their turn for me to draw them a picture.  I had a difficult time with drawing hands and feet on my cartoon characters so would purposely place the figure a "bit too low" on the paper so the feet wouldn't fit in the drawing and the arms were always bent behind the back.
