Knights On Dinosaurs, 1960

Melee With Monster, 1960

Toys In Urban Disaster, 1960

Strange Tower Assault, 1960

Are they horses or dinosaurs in the first of these four images? Mountain lion, monster or feral sagauro in the next? And what are the last two scenarios? Their scale leads me to think these are depictions of toys not humans. I collected plastic toy soldiers avidly from a young age and for a decade or more the floor of whatever bedroom I had was usually covered with some epic battle in progress: the Alamo, Shiloh, Chancellorsville, the Teutenberg Forest, the Pelennor Fields. Did I draw myself in this last picture?
