This time it’s my son I’m waiting to pick up from track practice. And this guy waddles up to my car.
Okay, maybe he didn’t waddle up to my car… but he DID pace back and forth in my brain while I drew him.
Sorry for the garish paper color, but ya gotta work with what you’re given. Like this penguin, for instance. He wanted me to draw him on a jet ski, but I told him we were fresh out of those and could only put him on a skateboard. I informed him we would have a shipment of jet skis coming in next month, but he was all in a hurry to get doodled so he had to settle for a skateboard. You could tell he wanted to complain about it, but he kept his cool and took it like a man.
Er… I mean, penguin.
At least, that’s how I assume it would look if you “took it like a penguin”. I could be way off base. Taking it like a penguin may actually involve temper tantrums and the hurling of sardines at the source of your disgruntlement. If that’s the case, then he didn’t take it like a penguin, but, in fact, took it like some much calmer bird that is not known for diva-like behavior.
I know I’m a little late to the “lunch bag art” party, but for the past eight years my kids have used lunch boxes. Kind of hard to draw on those. But, last night, I finally got my chance. My daughter is going on a field trip to the zoo today, and they requested that the kids bring there lunches in bags that could be thrown away. So- voila!– lunch bag lion!
