One of Lars' first stuffed animals was a panda spontaneously gifted to him by his cousin. It's still a favorite.
Lars loves staying up late to watch the fireflies.
Time to get out and hit some ponds! I sure hope Lars likes fishing when he gets older.
Lars loves all of the flowers popping up this Spring.
Back when I had a little more time, I liked to create multi-colored linocuts. I really loved carving for days, not being able to see the results until the first print. Some day I'd like to get back into that, but in the meantime I've tried to recreate the same technique digitally. It's not quite as therapeutic, but it is fun drawing in reverse. I've been experimenting with how to achieve the look using Lars' favorite cartoons as the subject matter. This one is Wanda and the Alien.
Sometimes my 3 year old is into stuff that's not very fun to draw... but the smile on his face is worth it. This kid is obsessed with smoke detectors right now!
Lars is in love with Fall leaves. It really is beautiful in the Midwest this year.
We recently went to a rodeo in central Kansas, so Lars thinks cowboys are pretty cool now.
