Collaboration: T-Rex, Superdog and Girl



The Brief: I'll show you. I'll draw it and you copy [fig. 1]. It's a T-Rex trying to eat a girl.
The Critique (on sketch, after TAD's, no longer extant): I hate that girl. You erase her and I'll draw her as I like her. I want her to be brave. She's not scared of one thing cause that's me and I'm not scared.
The Critique (on sketch, improved by Art Director [fig. 2]): I think my drawing's a little bit better than yours.
Comments on collaborative painting, above: That's my bag, and that's a puppy in it. I'm not noticing the dinosaur, but the superdog [note the 3 eyes] knows what to do. She bites it on the neck and kicks it into a lava pool -- that's the volcano.
Job Status: Approved

Adorable. I love brave girls with super-puppies who know just what to do.

Nice to see a collaboration – but surely that's just design by committee when you get the client that involved? ;)

Four years old and she draws like this? That's well good. I'm impressed.

What is it with the fascination of lava in TAD and others of her age?
