Claire and Fashionable Steppy

Steppy Drawing

Steppy has been a huge influence on Jade.

While at Grandma’s, Jade’s cousin Claire drew this beautiful picture of Steppy (above).

For some reason, Claire also fell in love with Steppy and now owns the same stuffy.

And of course, she’s also named her hamster “Steppy”.

Why is Steppy so fashionable ???

Maybe it’s Steppy’s small size ?? … the small hearts ?? … that soft pink colour ??

Maybe it’s because Steppy will always cheer you up and make you smile :-)

Liam The Scream’s “Red Autumn”

Red Autumn / Splatter Paint

At Grandma’s place, Jade had some exciting moments with her cousin Liam.

Liam loves to “splatter paint” and he created this wonderful autumn image (above).

My wife also created this “edgy” snake for Liam’s arm with face paints (below).

Liam’s hamming it up to scare his mom (my sister).

Lots of new art on Grandma’s fridge.

My daughter Jade, her cousins and myself drew voraciously at Grandma’s place.

Pass The Summer Salt

Jade’s old drawing from last summer.

Nothing better than some twirling picnic fun at the park … (she loves picnics).

Purply Summer Butterfly Days

Summer Dancing

Jade thinks everyone should dance in the sun.

Her butterflies are flittering the right of the page.

The ascending “M’s” are Jade’s talking symbols.

Painting Quirky Colour Lines

Quirky Colour Lines

Sometimes Jade likes to make different brush marks all over the page.

I love this approach — especially when she uses different colours.

It’s always interesting to photograph different sections. Below are some examples:

The past while, I’ve been going through Jade’s old drawings.

This was her first image with trees.

It was a favourite during the summer.

Doodles Inspired By The Movie “Dumbo”

Elephant Doodle
Over a year ago, I saw a documentary on John Lasseter.

He’s the creative genius behind Pixar.

There was a great part where he talked about Dumbo … his favourite movie.

He loved the cartoonish feel of the old film.

And back then, Disney wasn’t scared of heavy emotion.

Walt Disney used to say, “There should be a laugh for every tear.”

Around a year ago, we rented the movie and Jade absolutely loved it.

She was 2 and a half and loved the all characters.

For the next week, I drew Dumbo inspired imagery for Jade (shown below).

Jade was even motivated to try … below is her drawing of Dumbo.

Singing Happy Songs

Singing Happy Songs

A fun, happy drawing from my 3 year old daughter Jade.

We sing, play, and dance whenever we can.

Her happiness is truly contagious!

I just love her!

Jade’s Home and Workspace

Jade's Workspace / 1

Our family almost always paints or draws at our kitchen table.

We’ve thought long and hard about how to best integrate our family’s art space and material.

Firstly, we wanted to incorporate Jade’s art into the work space.

We also wanted our art resources / materials to be easily accessible.

For a final touch, we envisioned Jade’s paintings in our living room.

Last month, we went to Ikea and purchased some Expedit bookshelves.

For us, it’s a perfect space solution.

Today, I put up Jade’s art in our living / working area (pics below).
