«Desde niño pintaba como Rafael, pero me llevó toda una vida aprender a dibujar como un niño» Picasso
Maravillosos estos cadáveres exquisitos entre la ilustradora profesional Mica Angela Hendricks y su hija de cuatro años. Cada dibujo comienza con una cabeza dibujada por la ilustradora, después su hija completa el dibujo con lo que la cabeza le sugiere, y finalmente la madre retoca el dibujo final creando estas composiciones tan geniales como divertidas.
Sometimes I would give her suggestions, like “maybe she could have a dragon body!” but usually she would ignore theses suggestions if it didn’t fit in with what she already had in mind. But since I am a grownup and a little bit (okay a lot) of a perfectionist, I sometimes would have a specific idea in mind as I doodled my heads. Maybe she could make this into a bug! I’d think happily to myself as I sketched, imagining the possibilities of what it could look like. So later, when she’d doodle some crazy shape that seemed to go in some surrealistic direction, or put a large circle around the creature and filled the WHOLE THING in with marker, part of my brain would think, What is she DOING?!? She’s just scribbling it all up! But I should know that in most instances, kids’ imaginations way outweigh a grownup’s, and it always ALWAYS looked better that what I had imagined. ALWAYS.
