I'm a stay-at-home dad. Among other parental duties, it's my job to get our kids ready and off to school each day. That includes packing their lunches. I put a hand-written note with our son's lunch when he started first grade - a little love from home. That was all good 'til a few months into second grade when he admitted, "Dad...they're embarrassing." Well, just because his young brain got a bit agitated, I'm not done telling him I love him. So, I began sending along a little sketch instead.
Those early, two-minute drawings - my first since I don't know when - always on plain 3" x 5" index cards - evolved from pretty rough geometric shapes and single-color stick figures, to bright creatures colorized with magic markers and then, with a fortuitous birthday present, colored pencils. Now, each day's hand drawn monsters become the basis for digital portraits of Uncle J's Monsters.
