Although I mentioned it yesterday, I wanted to add another little plug for ICAD and Tammy’s neat zine. I mean, a zine about drawing little things? I’m the ideal audience on that one!
You can purchase it through her Etsy shop, download, and print it all this morning. I’m sold on download+print products. I love the instant access, love that there aren’t shipping costs…and I’m warming up to printing A LOT. I’ve looked through it online, but I want to print it out and leave it on the table next to the stack of cards.
ICAD is already working its special kind of magic at our house: Nicolas, who is 5 and draws all the time, drew some imaginary creatures inspired by Carla Sonheim. Mabel, who is 8 and feeling frustrated with her drawing just now, colored a card that she had draw a while back and then added a new one. AP sat and drew/painted a crazy card–one that caught the little ones’ imagination. And I was feeling frustrated by the small size (I know!) and wanted to paint, but colored a title card with water-soluble pastels. Love those things!
A little bit of art, a little bit of quiet–creating a place where we can listen.
