Patch and Mr. Spock

My seven-year-old, Patch, is quite the budding artist. She’s been drawing since forever and has probably been serious about it now for about a year. She does caricatures of family members, and has covered all four walls in her room with her artwork. One of the things she enjoys doing is asking me for subject matter to draw. In the past I’ve suggested Godzilla, bigfoot, aliens, werewolves, zombies – you know, stuff any seven-year-old girl would be familiar with. And she’s drawn every single one of them.

Since she wakes up around 5:30 every morning, we’ve gotten into the habit of telling her what to draw in the morning while everyone’s still asleep. Last night, I said, “Draw Mr. Spock from Star Trek.” And she complied:

“That’s not very logical, Captain”

Unleashing emotions care of the spores.

 Mind-melding with the Horta.

Pretty good for someone who’s only seven, right?

I think we move on to classic Star Wars characters next.
