Jade’s Little Hamsters

Jades Happy Hamsters

Jade loves it when I line up her stuffy hamsters. She loves it even more when I draw them.

Last Drawings Before Bed

Drawing Before Bed / 1

Jade draws everyday … from morning till night. Often, she wants to doodle before going upstairs for story time. I asked her about this particular image. She simply stated, “It is a big loving family.”

Last week, there was a city wide celebration called Vancouver Draw Down. Leading up to the event, were daily online challenges. The above image was my response to the Day 3 Challenge.

The Challenge:
Find a pattern in nature and fill a page by repeating it over and over, using at least eight different colours.

Once Upon A Time …
Jade, like almost all girls her age, is a huge Frozen fan. She is constantly singing and drawing scenes from her favourite movie.

In A Faraway Dark Forest …
When we went to the cinema together, I noticed the movie was based on The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. I was intrigued and took out an anthology of his writing from the library. With past Disney films, it is quite interesting to note the major changes the studio has made from his original stories (another example The Little Mermaid).

The Villain Appeared … Then Disappeared …
Earlier this week, Wired Magazine had a post about “re-telling” fairytales. It was a thought provoking article and I really appreciated their inclusion and notes regarding Gregory Maguire’s novel Wicked.

If you haven’t read the article, I highly recommend it:

Happily Ever After?
Even though fairy tales are mainly illustrated in simplistic terms (Good vs Evil), I find they provide a colourful spectrum of timeless dialogue between Jade and myself. These interpretive stories are fascinating catalysts to explore subtle differences between ourselves, other people and some of the various perspectives within our world.

Jade says her funny doodles are “rascals” and friends.

Their friendship is based on “joking around” and smiles.
