My six-year-old son has been drawing obsessively lately. I am very interested in his drawings. He tends to use simple lines, and fill up the paper. Alas, many of the drawings tend to be war scenes, influenced by his interest in the Star Wars stories. But, some pirate ships, submarines, and a most lovely rain forest scene have popped up lately as well.
He draws on 6 or 8 sheets of 8.5' x 11" paper that he first tapes together. He got this idea for large drawings at school. Over the winter his teacher provided a group of the boys with long pieces of paper to make drawings that they could revisit whenever they had free time or inside recess. They spent weeks drawing scenes, adding bits and pieces when they could. I thought it was a fantastic idea and was happy to see Adam doing the same at home.
I have a strange urge to see the two detailed black and white drawings at the top done in embroidery. Inspiration is found in unexpected places, isn't it?
