Dragon house

This is how this pic came about.

Me: I’m going to draw.

Kids: What are you going to draw?

Me: A dragon.

Kids: Draw a house!

Me: How about this house?

Kids: Yeah!

Me: *sketches the house and adds a dragon*

Kids: Why is there a dragon?

Me: I told you I was going to draw a dragon.

Kids: Now make a cat running away!

Me: There. Cats are hard to draw without reference.

Now you know how oddball pictures like this come into being.

  1. Haha, very cute. Question is, is the cat running from the dragon or the house?

    Do your children often influence your art/give you ideas?


  2. Ever played the “squiggle game”? Let one of them draw a squiggle, then draw around it to turn it into something–a wavy line into a snake, a curly line into a cat’s tail, a circle into a big frog, etc. Maybe they’d find it fun, if they like watching their mom draw. ūüôā


  3. Cyphir: Not often as they’d like! If I just drew everything according to their whims, it’d be My Little Ponies all the time.

    Gwen: Nope, haven’t played that, but it sounds like something they’d enjoy.


  4. Well bless those little muses. =D

    Also: awww, poor dragon. This art reminds me of your drawing a while back, the scene in the forest with the knight where it kinda looked like they were playing hide and seek – only the dragon was too big to really hide. NOW you’ve got a dragon with a fairly decent hiding place maybe – but nobody to play with. Unless it’s actually the kittys turn to hide… Hrm.
