Whatevers Part Three - The Darn Family
A couple years ago my friends Nat Kalbach, Cat Scanlon and I founded The Whatevers, a Creative Storytelling Project. If your not familiar with it, here is what it's all about. Most of us have seen discarded photos at flea markets, antiques shops ect. We wanted to give those photos a story. We each create our own page and write our own stories. We have had so much fun with these!
The three of us wrote an article for this recent Cloth Paper Scissors Issue
We have decided to bring the Whatevers back to life again, so we are creating pages and stories each week this month. We also share the photos so you can play along.
And check it out.. we made the cover!
Here is my layout
and my story:
Dan,Darlene and Debbie Dam were a fun loving family. Well, some of the town people called them "fun loving" others thought them to be a bit eccentric, and some just pain crazy. No matter what people thought of them, there was one thing that was agreed on by all...........They were as close as any family could be. They did everything together. Dan and Darlene had tried to have children for years to no avail. When Darlene was finally able to conceive Debbie, their world change. They were a family now. Everything revolved around Debbie and the three of them did everything together! When they were seen riding to town together with their new side car, it was really not much of a surprise. Well, the side car wasn't anyway, but the Dam's had their new purchased decorated with signs and flags, as well as horns that they could honk as they waved and road by.
No one in town was going to miss this!
Here is the original photo so you can play along with us.
