Purple Gatorade and Uger

The Brief: Purple Gatorade [The Tiny Art Director's Fish]
The Critique: Why did you draw Uger? [Her sister's fish] I hate Uger! Why is his eyes like that? It looks like he's mad.

What are you writing down? Grownups never lie, right Daddy?

Dad, that doesn't look like Purple Gatorade. Only mine looks like Purple Gatorade. You're going to scan it, and then when you're done with it, it's going to be scrappled up and thrown in the garbage. And then mine will be our final picture.
Job Status: Rejected
Our Final Picture: at right

My art critic is a 2.5 year old girl. Last night my tracing along with my attempts to show the critic how to trace ended up in pandemonium and the critic had to be temporarily committed to her room. I tried to tell her it was performance art-that tracing was so lame, that i was good.
Suffice it to say, tracing has been banished.

that really is a beautiful picture. It would look great on any wall. Did you ever consider making copies of your stuff and selling them on I am sure they would be a success.

thanks everyone. I hadn't thought of etsy - that's a good idea. I am trying to figure out the best way to do prints.

She may have rejected it, but I love the fish painting. Worthy of framing if you ask me.

Ah, Mr Bill: you have hit the nail right on the head there. Reminds me of several Art Directors (allegedly grown up) I have worked with down the years. Tell her she should consider going client side.
Thanks for making me laugh so much

Leslie said...

oh so amusing. I love kids at this age. And that you encourage her to be opinionated. :)

Chyna said...

LOL. Your girl has a point :)

Oh, I really hope you DIDN'T scrapple this up, 'cause I love it so much!

The addition of, "What are you writing down? Grownups never lie, right Daddy?" into her critiques instead of leaving it out since it's not technically a critique was so cute. Ah, only if grown-ups always told the truth though. :(

Also, Purple Gatorade really is a great name for a fish.

And why does she hate Oger? What did he ever do??

Wow! She's the kind of art critique that made me drop the only art class I ever took. :) Love your painting--and hers isn't too bad either. ;)
