Illustration Friday: Holiday

"Mommy and Baby" © Irvine
random sketches on notebook, December, 2005

This was a lovely surprise from Irvine. Strange how this came out of his random doodles. I dunno if he thinks about something first before drawing it, or the name just comes after looking at the result.

I don't know if anybody would believe me that My Irvine, only 4 years old, drew this!

The moment I saw this, I was surprised at how familiar it looked, and how the image was so fitted abstractly quaint. So I searched for different paintings of Madonna and Child. And it didn't take long to find the version of Duccio di Buoninsegna (circa 1300) painted in tempera and gold on wood panel. Which bears similar features. Or maybe it was just in my head..

Happy Holidays!

note: Irvine is still feverish, and having dry coughs. So we decided to spend Christmas Eve at home.

what i want for christmas

"Irvine, what do you want for Christmas?"

"I want a toy!"

"I know, let's write a letter to Santa! And tell him what you want."

"Yes! I wanna do it."

So I ran to my room and grabbed my pen and notebook.

But when Mommy saw my letter, she said Santa will not understand it.

"Oh, Baby... Let's make another one. This time with my help, ok."

"Ok. But Mommy, let's email Santa!"

"po po pow" © Irvine, October 28, 2004

this is my first MS Paint drawing using the mouse all on my own. I don't know how to talk straight then. I called the show Blue's Clues as "po po pow" - maybe because the dog (also named Blue) can only say po po pow. So that's among my first words too.. aside from "Mama" "Dada" "mamam" (milk) and "poopoo" (you know what that means).
