After being reminded of the movie, Rear Window, I fell in love (again) with Grace Kelly. I felt obligated to do a drawing of her on my iPad.

The Great Apple Complaint

Is this the same girl who stuck her finger on a spinning wheel?

World Land

I thought I had already posted this last June but I couldn’t find it. It was another granddaughter request. She wanted herself and her cousin, something about both Disneyland and Disney World.

Princess Knight

Yet another grandkid birthday and of course another drawing request:
Her: “Draw a princess knight with long braided hair coming out of her helmet. Draw her on a horse, fighting a dragon.”
Me: “OK”
Her: “Can you draw backgrounds?”
Me: “I think so.”
Her: “Put a volcano in the background.”

No scanner available so this is from my iPhone

Aurora Flunks

Yes, yet another princess cartoon. I guess it comes with having granddaughters.

Princess Zombie Santa

While visiting a couple of my grandkids for Christmas they made requests for drawings. Since it was Christmas they both wanted Santa cartoons. One wanted Santa wearing a tutu. The other wanted a zombie Santa. One grandkid is a 5 year old girl; the other, an 8 year old boy. I’ll let you figure out who asked for what.

I just spent the weekend with two of my grandkids. One boy, one girl. Each one asked me to draw something for them. Look carefully at each drawing and see if you can tell who asked for what.

Princess’ Pet Dragon

Another grandkid request. I deflected the calls for a drawing that was basically a repeat of the Dragon Princess Tea Party (August, 2010) but she insisted we have a “Cinderella” princess, a friendly dragon and a castle. The dragon should be blue and have a blue bow. What? Later she added that the dragon should be a rainbow dragon. Again, what? Here is what I came up with. I didn’t have a scanner available and had to take photos of the drawing but you get the idea.
