Budding Artist: Michael J

One of my friends has a talented son. Michael is 8-1/2 and quite the developing young artist. He loves to draw and, as you can see from the pictures below, is very good at it.

He drew this one on a napkin last year, when we were all out to dinner for my birthday:

This is another he drew on a napkin, a few weeks later:

My Christmas present was a bonefied hit. He also received art supplies from two others that night, so was in absolute heaven.

He set about using them right away. These are two that he gave me:

And this is one our friend Kim received from him that night. She also has a Darth Vadar he drew, but I did not get a chance to photograph or scan it yet.

Sherrie said she wanted a picture of a princess. After sneering at her (he is a boy, after all), he drew this:

I don't think we want to know who he used as a model, LOL.

Last year around this time, I asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. He replied, "An artist. Or a writer." I told him there was no reason he couldn't be both. I think we have a future graphic novelist on our hands!

Is the princess's dress see through???!! :-O

I don't think so. I think he drew the legs first, then remembered it was supposed to be a princess, and drew the gown after.

I see a certain super-hero slant here. Graphic novelist might be exactly right.

Heather said...

Yes, he loves Superman, Batman, and Star Wars. I love watching him draw!

He's pretty talented. I hope he keeps up with it!

Heather said...

I hope he does, too! I love that his parents encourage him. You should see the Star Wars cartoon he drew this week for my friend Kim, for her birthday. Can't wait to share that!

Thank you, I love sharing Michael's art work. I have a new one to upload to the compute/blog this week. *g*
