Mickey mouse and Minnie mouse
Tom was four this week. Happy birthday him.
Tom drew mickey and Minnie from memory.
Thomas draws a mural
Left tommy in bed, came in to find he’d drawn all over the wall - not scribbles, an actual mural. It’s a little hard to see, but it’s the hungry caterpillar - if you look carefully you might see the small caterpillar, the fat (post eating) caterpillar, the cocoon and a butterfly (not to mention the food with holes in it).
Below that are is teddy and some other things.
Tom was upset when he realised that drawing on the walls wasn’t a good thing. So upset, in fact we had to spend 5 minutes calming him down (he didn’t even need to be told off, a quizzical look and a low voiced but stern “Thomas…?” was enough to send him off. He’s a sensitive soul…)
Jack and the Lost Car - title
Toms favourite thing. I find the shapes of the gruffallo and the mouse very appealing. Unsure if they were by accident or design (this is also true of my own artwork)
So, to the left of the gruffallo there’s owl (I think the eyes and beak are a little malnourished in this pic, but good sturdy wings), mouse (he really looks like Tom has drawn him in profile - again, accident or design-don’t know)
The gruffallo - big smiley face and a black tongue (normally Tom forgets this detail)
Fox is to the gruffallo’s right. And I’m not sure what the things in bubbles are. There’s snake (just below gruff-looking a little snail like) and, oddly, some gruffallo crumble (it looks a bit like a cake-gruffallo crumble is the big punch line in the book the gruffallo though it’s only ever mentioned, I don’t think you ever see it. ). Have no idea what the other thing beside it is.
Mickey’s Rocking Roadshow
Left to right: woody (he seems to be in a car, though, when asked Tom said he was climbing on something), mickey,tigger (he has two bodies here-the body on the right was drawn and then he needed me to get him some reference “is triggers ears round daddy?” the second body -left- was drawn after I got him a photo)
And, finally, the princess from sleeping beauty (or snow white-I’m not sure)
The falling oblongs are glitter that was fired off at the end of the stage show that Tom saw.
Dr who (with sonic screwdriver)
We don’t watch much dr who with the kids (Nathan -7-doesn’t like it-too frightening, Tom-3- DOES like it but he can find it a bit scary too).
But Tom has a few toys, the tardis, amy, the doctor, a dalek and a cyber man. (and a lizard person)
Im not sure where or why he’s drawn the sonic screwdriver, it’s not a detail I remember pointing out to him. Also his head seems to be wearing a hat here, but that may just be Matt Smith’s floppy hair.
I drew a hulk picture for Tom ( on the cover of his comic) and he’s drawn it. I drew my hulk on the cover of his comic, this hulk was inside and it’s impossible to draw on that page while looking at the cover so he’s either kept turning the page for reference or he’s memorised what my hulk drawing is like and drawn it from memory.
He’s got the basic pose spot on but the tummy muscles have slid up to the arm and become slightly abstract patterns. I like hulks boxy head.
He’s tried to get the complexity of the fingers into this drawing but he’s only been able to do it by expanding the width of the arm.
(btw beside my hulk is a captain America holding the shield - inside the comic he’s not tried drawing the captain but he has had a couple of his at the shield)
Dalek and Captain Anerica’s[sic] Shield Drawn without reference. Occasionally the kids will want to do “a comic” - basically i’ll staple some pages in the middle and then they’ll draw whatever in it. This comic features a couple of pics of captain Americas shield. not sure what he likes about it, but he’s definitely fascinated by it.
