I sat down with my resident artist to discuss some of his work. Henry is 8 years old and loves to draw. I'm his mom so I'm a little biased, but I think he has talent.
Q: What do you like to draw the most?
A: That's a hard question. I used to draw dinosaurs a lot, but now I like drawing Mario. (Mario is a video game.)
Q: Do you have any artists in your family?
A: Yes, Grandma Sheldon paints pictures.
Q: What do you want to do when you are an adult and get a job?
A: Work with animals.
Q: Do you think you will continue to draw?
Q: What's some of your favorite things to do in art class at school?
A: Making stuff with clay. I like to draw animals in art.
Q: Do you have any advice for young artists?
Q: What's your favorite dessert?
A: Ice cream with chocolate sauce.
"Two robots and a dog robot. I drew these this week."
"These are Mario's partners and some of the bosses. They're from Paper Mario from the Nintendo 64."
"These are the five out of seven star spirits in Paper Mario."
"This is a screen print that I made of a Goomba."
"This is a picture of a monkey that I drew for Noah."
"This is a Haiku poem I made about dinosaurs in 2nd grade."
"This is an art project we made in art class in 2nd grade of giraffes dancing."
