How does one illustrate a large family where each member has their own special interest? Simple, you draw each family member doing their own thing.
That's the idea that Nicole came up with when she contacted me about creating an illustration of her family. She sent me oodles of pictures of her family and then described to me what each family enjoyed doing best. Dad, the musician in the middle, Nicole scrap booking (there are so many of you "scrappers" out there), daughter that is a ballerina, a karate freak, and an American Idol wanna be. Then there is one son that is obsessed with video games (according to Mom), the 2 year old that is into everything, and then the oldest son (photo not shown) apparently has something on his mind - and it ain't collecting baseball cards (also according to Mom).
The thing that strikes me about Nicole's network are the EYES!! Big blue eyes everywhere you go in that family. How is that possible? In my family all three of the girls have different eye color - blue, green, and brown. (Mine are red at the moment.)
This drawing was yet another Christmas gift for an unsuspecting husband. Nicole said, "He stared at the drawing for like 15 minutes, just going over and over it. He was kind of laughing the whole time. Then he asked me if I drew it? Duh!!!! He really liked it"!
Check out the whole Christmas scene at Nicole's house by going to My Three Brats. With a name like that the blog has got to be interesting.
