Bullies


Madhatter Monday - Bullies. This is a drawing of a pit bull terrier bully - half dog half girl. I remember a girl in primary school who bullied and taunted me for quite a while. Back then though we just had to deal with it. Schools didn't have policies and people weren't as educated as now. I just got on with life, and the details are very sketchy now but I don't hold a grudge.

Hi Liz,

I remember having a bully, not at school but in our neighborhood. You're right, it was for no apparent reason, I think bullies just work that way. I hadn't thought about that for a long time. I love the way you drew her, your dog is probably better looking though!

There is always a bully. I don't really think, as a recently retired teacher, that policies make a difference. They just are bullies! I like your drawing of the half girl, half pit bull. An apt description of a bully!

I was going to say "very imaginative" but really it's direct from experience, isn't it - very expressive. I have a bully image in my head waiting to be painted in my memory book series - bullies are never forgotten.
