Capture Creatures!

It was Grace’s pick earlier this week and she chose her favorite source of inspiration … Capture Creatures by Becky Dreistadt & Frank Gibson. Hers is a Crayola Dog (complete with doghouse.) Mine? A Lightmouse.

Free Draw!

Grace declared tonight “Free Draw” Monday, so …

Cate drew Powerpuff Girls.

Grace drew another “Capture Creature” — a reindeer worm or … “Reinworm.”

And, I turned to Ed Emberley, my “go to” inspiration a la his fingerprint book. Just a few kaiju on a Monday for ya!

Capture Creatures — Part the Third!

More Capture Creatures. The girls are really loving these. Cate drew a pig/turtle/squirrell/chipmunk without a name. Grace drew a star-shaped squirrell (kinda’ like Flystar). She made a point to tell me she did NOT copy off Becky Dreistadt for this one. I went with a Storokoth … a stork with tentacles. (Yeah. I’ve been reading too much BPRD lately.)

More Capture Creatures

We had so much fun drawing Becky Dreistadt & Frank Gibson’s Capture Creatures … we drew more. In fact, Grace has declared this “Capture Creature Week.” Cate drew “Pinky” a two-headed weiner dog who turns people into hot dogs. Grace drew “Violet Venom,” a flower spider. And, I drew “Slubblefly” …  snail with a bubble shell and butterfly wings.

And, Capture Creature fever is spreading, as Grace and Cate got their buddy, Jack Williams in on the act. Jack drew “Dragon Dog.” And, let’s face it the legs are creepily awesome as is the blood red flame! Awesome, Jack!

 

Capture Creatures!

Becky Dreistadt of Tiny Kitten Teeth fame is a fave at 5 Minute Marvels … she’s inspired us here and here. So, when we read about her new Capture Creatures project with her partner Frank Gibson, she inspired us again. Cate drew Flower Pot, a bear who grows flowers with a laser. Grace drew Scdodel (“ska-doodle”), who brings colors to peoples’ lives. And, I went with Peacniksticker, the hippie porcupine.
