Images in Black & White are a lot easier for babies to see and that’s why they make good gifts for friends who’ve just been through one of the greatest (and toughest) experiences of their lives and had a child! 12 boxes are filled with bits and bobs that are pertinent to the child in question and some are left for me to play with!
If you want to commission a Baby Grid drawing just contact me and I’ll get back to you with a few questions and then I can rustle something up for you!
It was my wife’s birthday recently, so I drew her a couple of pencil portraits of our children.
An analogy I’ve always used for our children’s characters is that one is ‘RADA’ and one is ‘Musical Theatre’. Can you guess which is which?
I’m always up for a commission, feel free to get in touch for info on timings, prices etc.
My son has now been saying em-oh-gee whenever something blows his mind (it’s at least a daily event when you’re a kid) and I’ve just figured out it’s because he’s got OMG a little mixed up.
My Son had a buddy over for a playdate after school and I listened in on them and my daughter (the youngest of the 3) role-playing something…
Son’s Friend: …okay okay, if you’re the boss I wanna be the second boss.
Son: Okay. So I’m the boss and you’re the second boss.
Daughter: Yeah, okay, and if you’re the boss and he’s second boss, I wanna be the LAST boss.
Son & Friend: …Okay.
The London Loop gallery is up all over London at the moment and I thought I’d do a little submission, yunno, something silly to brighten up your day if you happen to spot it at a bus stop. It was originally a #TMCAMTD idea but it deserved an inky upgrade from the crayon doodle…You can vote for it here
We have been talking about animals that can jump for the past 5 minutes…
Me: …And Antelopes! They’re excellent at running and jumping.
Daughter: The lovely beautiful ones Daddy? They have horns?
Me: Yes! (She loves them! How sweet!) They would jump SO high if they were here now, they’d be SO happy to see you!
Daughter: …Oh no Daddy. The horns would spike (Gestures with fingers upwards and shouts BANG!) the ceiling.
Me: What game should we play?
Daughter: Let’s play Mummies and Daddies!
Me: I AM a Daddy, that’s not a game for me really, it’s just real life… Why don’t we play…MAKING SOMETHING!
Daughter: (Really excited) YES! You be Make and I’ll be Something.
Me: What’s your favourite number?
Me: Why’s that? Why not, I don’t know…4?
Son: Daddy, if you said I could have 4 milkshakes or 6 milkshakes then I would have 6. So 6 is better.
Me: …so you’ll need to make sure you wear your swimming hat buddy.
(He looks at me and my wife. He is thinking. Obviously.)
Son: Is it a humungous giant hat? Like a Mr Wonka Hat daddy?
Me: Er, no, professional swimmers stopped wearing those a while back.
