Roo's Art

My son Roo is a pretty talented little artist. He is 7 years old and takes art classes after school on Wednesdays at the community center. He's vaguely interested in my dollhouse world and sometimes I wake up and come in to the living room to find my dollhouse rearranged (no, I don't mind).

But he's under the illusion that "dollhouses are for GIRLS" so he'll rarely play with it WITH me. Although, the other day he did play with some Calico Critters stuff I had bought and tucked a baby into a cradle. I think he's just desperate for sibling, which won't be happening any time soon.

Anyways, he saw my blog and said he just MUST be featured. So here is some of his artwork. A combination of his favorites and mine.

A dragon head. Drawn in pencil. No he does not trace anything though he sometimes uses pictures for references.

A Triceratops. Drawn in pencil.

Roo calls this one "Yew Nork" (We lived in "New York" for a year). Drawn with fine line pen and colored pencils.

 A Chinese Dragon. He actually drew this when he was 6 years old. Drawn in colored pencil.

A school assignment that I really enjoyed. Drawn in crayon.

Another picture he drew at school for a book report. I like the teacher's shoes LOL. Drawn in pencil and crayon.

 A horse! Drawn in pencil, fine line pen, and chalk pastels.

This one just cracks me up. Roo should be a cartoonist. heh. Drawn in ballpoint pen.

He made this one for meeee!! So I framed it :D Drawn in chalk pastels and Sharpies

 A Chinese brush art Fox.

The piece de resistance. Roo's spectacular apple. This is actually being featured in a magazine. Drawn in chalk pastel.

AAAAAAND presenting the arteest!

Roo would also like me to note that Eric Carle (author of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" among other books) acknowledges him as a talented up and coming little artist. He saw Roo's artwork via my Godfather who is friends with Mr. Carle.
