While I have been traveling, my father, Ted Barton, has been recording some of my excursions through cartoons. He has been drawing cartoons of my life for as long as I can remember. However, his drawing of me were of the same 8 year old until I turned 20. Flipping through his cartoons, it is always funny to see an 8 year old me for 10 years, and then all of a sudden 20 year old me. If only cartoons were real life, I would have gladly skipped those awkward teenage years anyway. I think my dad should turn this hobby into a reality, don't you?
