Terrible Yellow Eyes

The kids LOVED all the wonderful artwork collected at Cory Godbey's "Terrible Yellow Eyes" blog ( see here)

They were inspired to try their hand at Where the Wild Things Are:

cut paper

Update: Cory included the kids' pictures on the Terrible Yellow Eyes site! The kids have no concept how cool that is to be included alongside such amazing artists, but Dad sure does... Some of my long-time heroes are in there. Check it out here in the June 19th post.

"Unfold" for Illustration Friday

For Illustration Friday this week, the kids made some mirror image paintings. They painted half an image on a sheet of paper, folded the page, pressed it down, unfolded the page, and discovered how chance saw fit to complete the image.

Here are some faces by Isaac (age10):

And some crazy creatures by Gracie (age 8):

And finally some lovely butterflies by Lily (age 6):
