More Every Day Matters

“Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” –  Pablo Picasso

In my last post, I wrote that I was thankful for the big things in my life.  When I asked my kids what they were thankful for, they said things like, “My family,” and “You, Daddy” (correct answer, son!).

But they also said things like, “my trains,” and “the Jelly Belly factory.”  In the lives of little boys, simple things are important.

As Picasso implies in the above quote, the problem as we grow up is not just how to remain an artist, but how to maintain a child’s perspective that simple things and moments matter.

Included in this post are more of my sketches from the Every Day Matters Challenge that I previously wrote about in my post, “Every Day Matters.”

PS. For those of you who don’t know Flat Eric, in 1999, he was featured in a brilliant TV ad campaign for Levi’s Sta-Prest clothing line.  Below are the first two commercials – a cult following ensued.

PPS. Pete Scully, a wildly talented sketcher based in Davis, CA, has embarked on his own EDM Challenge.  You should check out his posts, here, here, here, and here.
