My public-ed scribblings, posted for your delectation.
The Books of Bad Ideas
These are my old notebooks from high school, which doubled as sketchpads. They
are presented without context, and are largely dedicated to things that were
never made. Those include video games, fanfiction, and websites.
To reduce filesize, these scanned images only have a two-color palette. My
handwriting probably isn't neat enough to be read in the first place, but this
makes doing so a bit more difficult. For your convenience, I transcribed most
of the pages that were nothing but writing into text.
