Hey yall. These pictures aren't really things I'm 'working on' per se, but they involved art so I'm placing them in this thread. I just got back from hangin' with my sister and 3 kiddos. There is a bit of magic when you get to be a kid again.... feeding offa the energy and imagination of actual children is good for the soul (<hope that doesn't sound creepy. Ha! I just don't know any other way to express that particular idea). Anywho.... Aunt Kat got to hang with her nieces Allie (age 4), Moe (age 9), Madie (friend to Moe, age 9) and my sister Laura (let's just say she isn't young?) We played games and got a bit artsy. One game was for each of us to draw a cat in honor of an aunt Kat visit. They gave me an extra challenges, pulling out their cell phones to use the timer.... saying I only had 1 minute to complete the task. The other challenge was I couldn't look at an imagine of a cat and had to draw a cat which was in my head. (I seriously can't draw unless I'm looking at something, as for some reason the shit in ma noggin is all crap). This is what we came up with. (I didn't use the timer the kids BTW. I actually asked them to take their time).
Next picture was the same challenges for me, but this time I had to draw Willy Wonka. This picture has my Willy Wonka at the top, then Moe wanted to draw a chocolate bar with 2 excited kids who just found out they won the golden ticket. Then the bottom image is Moe's version of Willy Wonka.
The last two pictures are Moe's drawings. The first is a picture of Steve Jobs (as a fairy. Ha!) and a chick.
This last one is a picture Moe did of me and ma dreadies. She made me sit very still and would hold her thumb up in front of me and shut one eye to make things authentic Lol!! I seriously love that child. She's awesomeness ♡ I really like how she captured the eyes. I swear I wasn't trippin'. Ha!
Omg Kat those are amazing! I love how unabashed kids are, especially with art. I chuckled at Steve jobs as a fairy... hehe. Sounds like fun!
Ha! I know right? I was surprised that a 9 year old knew who Steve Jobs was honestly. The fact that Moe enjoy drawing him as different fictional characters in her spare time kills me! Lol. She has a sketch book with Several Jobs drawings. In one he is wearing a pointy witch hat with a broomstick. In another one he has a unicorn horn! Lololol. I'd actually like to crawl inside her mind and live there. It's a magical place to be
FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
