Do you remember that scene from Napoleon Dynamite where he drew the ‘mythical’ Liger (a cross between a Lion and a Tigress)? I thought that (the liger) remained a myth until I actually looked it up on the internet. I also remember how I used to imagine and make my own mix of creatures using my pencils and crayons. Some made sense in combat and practical aspects, and some were just plain ridiculous. We’ve all been there. A child’s imagination is so vast and endless.
