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.
Fun family time together!
It’s still rainy weather outside but we’re still doodling.
Jade draws a “glowy chicken” on the iPad.
A leaf rubbing detail.
A detail of my wife’s fun doodles.
A graphic expression of the letter “S”.
A detail of my “Mambo” doodle.
Jade drew “Steppy” on her head.
Jade said, “This is a lion.”
“This is a dragon.” Jade tried writing the caption near her drawing.
She also said, “That’s a mushroom” for the shape under the dragon.
“This is a sun.” Jade describes her drawing.
“It’s a little worm parade.” Jade explains the bottom squiggles on the page.
The 2nd and 3rd squiggles are “meows.”
