Mom Lets 4-Year-Old Daughter Complete Her Illustrations To Amazing Effect



[View All on One Page]

Artist Mica Angela Hendricks was in a difficult spot. Her daughter had a penchant for commandeering her art supplies but she desperately wanted to try out a new sketchbook. So she did, and so her daughter asked to use it, as predicted. When Hendricks resisted, her daughter said, “If you can’t share, we might have to take it away if you can’t share.” That’s one smart cookie. “Not surprisingly, I LOVED what she drew,” wrote Hendricks. “She never hesitated in her intent. She wasn’t tentative. She was insistent and confident that she would of course improve any illustration I might have done…And the thing is, she DID.” Take a look at what the mother/daughter duo created.

If you like the look, Hendricks has put some up for sale as prints on Society6.

    Those are both adorable and incredibly well drawn! I think I’m gonna get one of these prints, because who WOULDN’T want a picture of human headed space beavers on their wall?

    I meant like the mythological creature, an animal with a human head.

    If my mom kept drawing floating heads on a piece of paper, I’d be like, “Mom, let me finish it” too! LOL

  • Mary Kidd

    Yes, “Space Beavers” are the best!

  • Lady Viridis

    I’m pretty sure the coloring is all the mom.

  • Cherece Lindsay

    Obviously the Human Headed Space Beavers are the BEST THING EVER!!!!! How can you NOT love that?

  • Leah Elzinga

    it’s the ROBOTS!!!

    it looks like a collaboration. Sometimes there’s more gradation and shading and othertimes it’s more “child like”. I’m guessing Mom picked back up when little one moved on…
