I just found a wonderful blog called Parenting, illustrated with crappy pictures™. Amber Dusick tells stories about her children and draws pictures that are not crappy, just simple. This illustration is from the post art with kids, the two scenarios.
Their attention is held because of the amount of mess they are making.
Scenario Two officially starts the moment they invent a new technique, like splattering paint across the paper or pouring it directly onto the paper. I always applaud these techniques. They are having fun! Creativity is messy!
I applaud them because there is a stifled artist inside of me living vicariously through their freedom. Plus, I am an idiot.
The other posts are just as funny. My particular favorite is what fortunate means. But you'll want to read more of Dusick's stories. Link -via Metafilter
