Gerade in jungen Jahren ist es wichtig, dass sich die Eltern wirklich alle Zeit der Welt nehmen, sich um ihre Kinder zu kümmern. Das weiß auch die Künstlerin Mica Angela Hendricks. Diese hat kurzerhand ihrer 4-jährige Tochter in die Erschaffung neuer Bilder eingespannt. Dabei malte das Kind den unteren Körper von etwas und die Mutti malte den Kopf dazu. So einfach die Idee auch ist, so cool sehen die Resultate aus.
Sometimes I would give her suggestions, like “maybe she could have a dragon body!” but usually she would ignore theses suggestions if it didn’t fit in with what she already had in mind. But since I am a grownup and a little bit (okay a lot) of a perfectionist, I sometimes would have a specific idea in mind as I doodled my heads. Maybe she could make this into a bug! I’d think happily to myself as I sketched, imagining the possibilities of what it could look like. So later, when she’d doodle some crazy shape that seemed to go in some surrealistic direction, or put a large circle around the creature and filled the WHOLE THING in with marker, part of my brain would think, What is she DOING?!? She’s just scribbling it all up! But I should know that in most instances, kids’ imaginations way outweigh a grownup’s, and it always ALWAYS looked better that what I had imagined. ALWAYS.
