I'm sharing my blog with my son again...



The Angry Boss

I am especially proud of my son's entry today. This is the first colored pencil drawing that he's done where he used a layering technique to achieve a final color. He worked lightly and built up the color slowly. Without any prompting from me he learned about optical mixing of color.

This is supposed to be a drawing of my boss. My son hasn't seen my boss very often, so I love that he thinks all bosses smoke cigars and are angry all the time. He knows it's not really that way, but who can blame him? After all, remember Mr. Spacely from the Jetsons? J. Jonah Jamison from Spiderman? Lu Grant from the Mary Tyler Moore Show?

The technique is awesome, but i love his expression! I can just feel the anger from here!!!!

Cigars must be a part of the ceo/president job description. Oh, and high blood pressure ta boot..

Yes, I love that he likes to draw. I have 3 great kids, but he's the one that really has the eye for it.

Exceptionally cool drawing---apples not falling far from trees and all of that.

The great part is you could ask 100 people what this man's profession is and I'll bet nearly every single one would say : "The Boss!"
I know your son is too young for a blog but does he journal or keep a sketchbook? It would be SO FUN to have his artwork contained in one place so he can look at it when he's older and document his progress! I think "CARTOONS ABOUT DAD" would make great subject matter! ;c p

Hey Carolyn,
He does have a sketch book, but a lot of his stuff is loose. You're right, I need to make a point of collecting it and keeping it. I wish I still had some of the stuff I did when I was a kid. And I'll pass on the "Cartoons about Dad" idea. I may not want to see them though! :-)

Hey, I think I know that guy! Great drawing and fantastic colored pencil technique!

Carolyn said...

Hi Chuck, me again.
I visited a blog where an artist liked to draw on plain old copy paper. When he accumulated 25-30 or so loose drawings he'd pick them to Kinko's to have them bound. Or you could always put them in plastic sleeves and keep them in a 3-ring binder.

Hi Ho Hi Ho, it's off to work I go!
Have a great day!
