Nick's Monarch Butterfly Drawing, Work Doodles Enhanced

My six-year-old grandson Nick loves to draw.  He saw a film on Monarch butterflies and was inspired to sketch this picture.  I watched him, and was amazed by his seriousness and his concentration.  He is my new role model for how to draw creatively.

A while back work was really boring, and not very busy, so I put my sketchbook on my desk in front of me and just mindlessly doodled.  It had to be something easy and repetitive so that I could start and stop at a moment's notice.  Took the doodles home and scanned them in, worked them up a bit.

Great post Tom. Love that feel you have for rhythm and design. Kid art is great. Saw this post and added it to my Tumblr

Your work doodles need right-clicking and "view image" selected for high rez goodness. Makes a huge difference.

Yeah, I'm with Goodson--great post, Tom!

Love yr doodles, and Nick's drawing--and yr thoughtful commentary.

Well, any commentary seems thoughtful on this blog, doesn't it??

Like the fish especially. I like how you clumped them towards the center. It's subtle, yet it gives the picture weight.

Scott's back! Now where do you think he goes in between visits? Is he seeing another artists' blog on the side? I wonder when Tom Carroll will show up again?
