About three years ago, I formed the habit of drawing my two youngest brothers in cartoon form. The style was a bit more simplistic (like the drawings above) and I used the practice to loosen up. It would also keep the little ones more or less entertained. I would sketch them having crazy adventures... being kidnapped by aliens... joining the French Foreign Legion... all sorts of silly things. I also remember how they would slip out of the room to play with their toys or watch a movie, leaving me to sit and draw for hours. (Now I wonder who was baby-sitting who!)
I thought I would try it again this weekend and I put color to one. (by the way, this is unlike my youngest brother to throw a water balloon at an unsuspecting girl - he's not that bad!)
And here’s another pesky siblings idea sketch. Recently I’ve had the pleasure of sharing some of my personal space with a couple of “tadpolts,” so I found this drawing apropos.
