Soaring into a new year



I told my 4 and-a-half-year-old that we could draw some airplanes for this week's Illustration Friday topic: soar. So he pulled out his sketchbook where I draw for him and this is what we did. So fun! He was the pilot and his sister was the co-pilot. Let this soaring plane take us all into a wonderful 2008. Happy New Year! (You can see more of my collaborations with Alex here.)
Le dije a mi peque de cuatro años y medio que podíamos dibujar aviones para el tema de esta semana en Illustration Friday. Dicho y hecho, sacó su sketchbook donde yo le hago dibujos y esto es lo que hicimos. Nos lo pasamos pipa. Él es el piloto y su hermana es la co-piloto. Que este avión nos lleve a un fantástico 2008. ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! (Puedes ver otras de mis colaboraciones con Alex aquí).

  2. What a wonderful idea to collaborate with a child! The illustration is lovely. I like how the birds fly with the airplanes. My 8-year old loves art; I need to try collaborating with him. He has dictated pictures to me ("Draw an ogre. Bigger! Put some damaged buildings in the picture. How about some skeletons?"), but we have not drawn the same piece together.
