Today is Columbus Day which allowed playtime during the girls’ naps. He wanted me to give him some tips on drawing and he decided we would each draw an ugnaught. (Don’t feel badly if you don’t know what that is. I have learned a lot from this Star Wars kid and his dad. Click here to find out.) I gave him a few simple tips (perspective, not centering the ugnaught, etc.)–and voila! I present our ugnaughts:
As you can see, J’s creature is amidst his creature comforts: a factory in Cloud City. Mom’s ugnaught is caught in some surreal environment, since Mom had no idea where an ugnaught ought to be and drew “stream of consciousness” style.
It still seems that I’m getting off easy, here. I already like to draw and color. But I swear I did not influence his decision! I suppose the fact remains that J likes to draw, too. And I suppose, had it not been for Operation Play, I would never have drawn an ugnaught.
