It’s been a little over two years since I troubled the blogosphere with one of my not-very-good drawings. But, though my artistic talents have not improved in that time, I have acquired a new fan of my doodles.

Little Proclaims is quite keen on drawing too, although much of her work appears to be from a more abstract school of art.

Lately though, she has been in a collaborative mood, or perhaps aware of the limitations of her still-developing motor skills, she has become frustrated that she can’t quite create the images she wants.

Her solution is therefore to get me to draw pictures for her. She seems to have far more faith in my ability than is merited, but as I regularly used to post my inane doodles on this blog prior to my daughter’s arrival in this world, I can hardly claim that I don’t also hold a slightly inflated view of my own talent.

Anyway, the game appears to be that she asks (or rather demands repeatedly until I cave in) that I draw something and then she adds her own interpretation to the piece. I expect this will be a ‘thing’ in our lives for some time, and given than I employ absolutely no quality control whatsoever in terms of what I’m prepared to post on this blog, it was always likely that I would use this daddy/daughter activity to generate content.

And lets be fair, it won’t even be close to being the worst thing that I post this week.

So without further ado, I give you our latest masterpiece, which is simply entitled:

    Note:the pilot’s head is shaped like the cockpit of the chopper.

    I’m going to say that was an artistic choice although it was an entirely unconscious one…

    My husband works for the FAA. I’m going to need to see an N number on that aircraft….

      I don’t know what an N number is, but I can draw it again if you like…

        It’s a registration number required for all aircraft. But no, one drawing was enough… thanks.

    Definitely impressed at how your daughter has managed to draw the helicopter almost completely within your brown doodling.

    I think Little Proclaims’ addition to the work give it an added dimension. Or something. I know nothing about art at all.

      To be fair, no-one knows anything about art, but some people are really good at pretending.

    Unfortunate choice of colour by Little Proclaims… Still, looks like there’s no flying body parts left after being so minced in the rotors now.

      I did encourage the use of other colours and she would not be persuaded but ultimately I feel that the finished work speaks for itself and needs no further explanation. Which is helpful because I have none to offer

      It does get you so far, but there are limitations in terms of where you can go
