Inspirations

18 Nov

I’m not that sappy about parenthood in general (Regular Readers: “No shit!”), but kid artwork brings me to my knees. Here are some recent pieces I’ve found particularly inspiring.

I couldn’t capture this one that well with a camera phone, but it’s a long, incredibly detailed, extensively notated book about the Greek gods and goddesses inspired by reading The Lightning Thief by Percy Jackson.

This is a whimsical watercolor creature.

Just like “real” artists, I have found my kid artists go through phases. The picture below shows a new subtype of work from this kid–dense, colorful, very detailed. And using more than one medium (colored pencils, crayons, PUMPKIN STICKERS)!
