Daddys version #2

My just turned 5 year old son presented me with this awesome picture the other day.

Being the brilliant father I am I’ve since forgotten what he said it was… ahem.

Of course, all I saw was what I wanted to see, so to me it was the most awesome abstract expressionist drawing of a giant robot in a forest I’d seen.

Being an old hand at ripping off my kids’ ideas I couldn’t resist.


I traced over the lines I liked and embellished a bit, but when Isaac handed me the picture this is pretty much what I saw.

I shocked myself by drawing it in Flash(not my favourite software). Colouring was done in Photoshop. The giant robot in forest theme is pretty reminiscent of the Iron Giant. (if you haven’t watched ‘Iron Giant’ watch it now, it’s bloody brilliant)

I dunno, maybe the death ray should have been shoulder mounted……

  1. According to Isaac’s drawing, there seems to be more fire power coming from that shoulder…peyow…peyow..
    It also seems like he’s shooting the thing willy-nilly up and down (in Isaac’s picture). Yours is more refined and clearly has purposeful shooting going on! You should ask him what it was and then show him your version.
