Spotty's Soft Steps


The Brief: A Deer. He lives in the forest. He's in a clearing. The sun is bright. It's in the summertime. He's just got a new pair of antlers. The ground is wet and soft. His hooves are quiet. He waits to hear another one of his kind. Deers live in a pack. He has a spotted back. When he hears a predator he'll jump and leap. Mountain Lions strike softly and quietly.

The Critique: I like it because his antlers are in a funny shape and he has a blaze on his forehead.

Job Status: Approved

Additional Comments: TAD has realized that the best way to get something done right is to do it herself.

Thanks for sharing TAD with everyone. I am sorry this may be your last post, but I appreciate that TADs don't stay tiny forever :-(

Oh my gosh. This blog is hilarious. Love the art and the comments. I laughed so hard at the bone dinosaur eating the baby, my kids came running to see what was so funny.

I was telling my friend how my two-year-old asked me to draw her a baby and she was so displeased with it, it made her cry. So she showed me this blog.

What wonderful pictures and great way to explain and show children's art and kooky minds. Sorry to hear that may be your last post. I've a TAD of my own that was thrown into the most depressing moment of his life when his haunted house drawing turned out horrifically. Just as he explained it, but not as he intended. Mea culpa.

Haha that's great. I remember drawing for my niece during church thinking she'd love it all since I was 15 years older and had studied art, but everything I drew she hated. Then she'd take the pen and show me how to do it. Honestly, though, that hasn't changed all that much now that the art directors are older than me. Except now they just don't call back when they don't like the pitch. :D
