Team Jacob

Jacob's dad died in his sleep in January. His aunt (and friend of mine) asked if I'd be interested in speaking with Jacob who has been keeping a fantastic little sketchbook filled with robots and super-heroes. I was thrilled to share my little sketchbook (also filled with robots and super-heroes) with him and take a look through his. I love looking at children's artwork that is so innocent and creative and unspoiled by structured adult art instruction. We scanned some of his characters and played on the computer and then I shared my painting process with him and created little robots on canvasboard and acrylic paint. The best robots come from your imagination and I think these two (and Jacob) are ready to conquer the world! We had a fun time.
