Artist Collaborates With 4-Year-Old on Weird, Wonderful Drawings


Much like when our beloved illustrator Jason Novak collaborated with his one-and-a-half-year-old daughter to draw all 43 US presidents, artist Mica Angela Hendricks shared her sketchpad with her four-year-old:

“I was going to draw a body on this lady’s face,” I said.  “Well, I will do it,” she said very focused, and grabbed the pen.

The results—skillful, stylized human faces with exuberant, childish non-human bodies—are strange and delightful.
