Crayons and Pig

We went out to eat tonight, which is really the best way to draw on the back of placemats. My son (3 years old) was in rare form. The orange streaked waitress was informed that "You have funny lookin' hair". Then a really big fat guy walks in and he says "Dad, look at that really big fat guy!" I was proud that he was so good at observing details, but could he just keep it to himself.

We pulled out the placemats and crayons. He scribbled the maze and the crossword. Excellent craftsmanship. I asked him what he wanted me to draw. A gun and a skateboard. This was the resulting drawing. Sometimes crayons are the best media in the world. I also drew a really big fat guy but, I didn't include it. Really, he was BIG.

Earlier in the day I was doodling on the phone and made the pig. Added paint. Voila! Enjoy.

Hey--you stole that scene from nursery class on Sunday! (except we try to keep the nursery free from skateboards and assault weapons.) Great sketch. Thank heavens for placemats and crayons!

Great stuff Guy! On the crayons, I think it's more the hand that wields it that makes it so great. Wonderful stuff!

Also, I can't help but imagine the kid on the right and the pig on the left and that they're about to go at it.

Love that pig, kactiguy! Phone doodles seem to work for quite a few bloggers out there. Gotta try it myself.
