POOF! You under monster's power! Give monster cookies!
This is an illustration I did for LAST week's Illustration Friday. The theme was "Poof" but it took me too long to draw, paint, photograph (I would love to scan for the better image, but I am still waiting for that advancement) and post. And then POOF! Friday came and went and came again.
But I thought I would post it anyway. G loved the sketch, particularly the polkadots in the background. He called them bubbles and pretended to pop them. Maybe he loved the monster picture because he saw himself in it. I don't know why he might feel that way. That Poof Monster has nothing in common with my lovely and angelic son.
He definitely offers up some inspiration. I like to use his aesthetic sense as a sounding board, actually. He had an opinion about the Sail painting, too, saying it needed more color when I showed it to him in only blue and white. Maybe I'll show it to him again, because I think it's a little off... something about the flying girl does not seem finished to me. Maybe G will know what it needs. My little monster has opinions, he does.
And actually, he's into lollipops, lately, not cookies. Probably because I rarely give him lollipops. Something about the rare, treaty goodness. I bet he'd like to be able to poof me into giving him candy.
