Airplane Art - Fat Music

Of the four sketches that I brought home from my trip to Oklahoma/Texas this is the one that my wife likes the best. That surprised me. I thought my previous post was the best one - but who can account for taste? She said that one of the reasons she liked it was because she thought it was something a little different than what I normally draw. That response surprised me too. It's not like I've never drawn an obese person before - though I will say that I've not drawn many horns and my representation of music is altogether different than I've ever drawn before - so - maybe - she's right (boy, do I hope that she doesn't read this entry). Maybe it IS different.

Still, I think that she's wrong about which drawing is the best. But, this is not the first time that we've had different opinions about something. And, I dare say that it won't be the last.

There are two more to come. (I have a long story to tell with one of them) You tell me which one of the four illustrations you think is best.

I've been looking at your stuff and I'm very impressed. You're very talented! This is maybe a little off the subject of your post, but I have a question for you.

If you had a child who showed some pretty amazing artistic talent at a fairly young age, would you put them in classes, allowing them to learn techniques, etc., or would you simply let them do their own thing until they were a bit older?

P.S. I'm with your wife on this one. I like her choice.

Checked out your doodles and find them exceedingly groovy. Your blog is interesting and your point of view poinient.
I refer to my art as scribbles and I do learn a lot from nice folks like you that leave pointers and insight into drawing and sketching.
Peace Kai

Just wanted to say that I like your stuff, and that if you don't already, you should open a shop at cafepress.com and sale your work on calendars, prints, cards and stuff. I think you would do well....

Thanks for your answer to my question! It made total sense. At this point I just do my best to make a lot of art supplies available to her and hope that's enough. At least for the time being.

Thanks again!
