Please Indulge Me

while I drone on about my pweshus children's art.

Q-ster's depiction of Count Dooku (left), in a lightsaber duel with Obi-wan and Mace Windu.

General Grievous (complete with four arms) facing off Plo Koon and another alien Jedi whose name I can't remember.

Separatist ship under attack.

Q-ster made those drawings at the beginning of September, and while he was hard at work at the kitchen table, his little brother was also at his sketchpad, chattering away at the counter. "Now I draw spaceship! With gun! Now I draw Jedi! With brown boots! And red lightsaber!"

Buster's narration was so detailed and colorful that Q-ster came over to see what he was doing. Was he really that skilled?

Buster's September Star Wars art. Well, perhaps he was better at marketing than drawing at this point.

This is where the little story would have ended, if I'd actually gotten around to writing it a month ago. However, things have changed a lot in the last few weeks, perhaps under the influence of pre-school, or just a renewed interest in drawing.

He's working on a Harry Potter Quidditch scene.

He explained that the red one is Harry (Gryffindor colors) and the green ones are Slytherins, of course. The yellow dot is the snitch, and the red and black dots (which he may have gotten a little help on) are the Quaffle and a Bludger. He took great pleasure in describing the elements to me.

Q-ster had a nice new drawing today too:
What is it? It's a scene from Plants vs Zombies!

Ah, pop art indeed.

Hard to follow all the changes.
But good commercials.

Ooooh, the potato mines, fly trap zombie eaters and frozen pea shooters. Good choices, Q. :)

Love! I will always look at kids' art. So much fun.

So cute! & So different from what my girls ever drew.

We have a Plants vs. Zombies scene somewhere in the house, too. Ah, the influence of video games on children!

And marketing is an excellent skill to have, no matter how you slice it.
