"A drawing is simply a line going for a walk".

As the weeks go by i am becoming more and more impressed by my son's drawings, i find the way children view things and the markings they use to express what their seeing so interesting. id love to be able to draw like him but im never going to be able to see things from his perspective.

Recently he has been drawing a lot of super hero's (surprise surprise). 

I love the fact that i don't even need to write who they are as you can clearly tell which hero he has drawn.

You can ask him to draw anything, at first he will say "i can't draw that" but once he gets going theres no stopping him. Me and Mrs M are both creative people and even met studying Art at university so we do everything we can to encourage the boys to be creative with many different mediums.

This is definitely my favorite of his super hero drawings (so far).

There's something really touching about your child coming to you clutching a piece of paper and saying "ive drawn a picture of you".

For example, this is me and my son having a food fight, he has chosen the classic tomato (im assuming over ripe for maximum effect on impact) i myself have chosen a slice of cucumber (im not sure what i was thinking that day but its quite clear who would win that battle).

This would be me again, cleverly on his part he has decided to draw this portrait showing both my front and rear. apparently i am naked and my bum crack goes all the way up my back?? more importantly i am anatomically incorrect (nothing beats being de-masculated buy a 5 year old). The pink spot on the back of my head is my brain!! (oh how i love my boys mind).

Both mine and Mrs M's favorite all time picture was the one he pulled out of his school book bag a couple of weeks ago. I love the thought of him sitting in school drawing pictures of us. Its clear he loves us as much as we love him.
