Outer Face

by Busymockingbird

Fine art print on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Individually trimmed and hand stretched museum wrap over 1-1/2" deep wood stretcher bars. Includes wall hanging hardware.



These are collaborative paintings by my 4-year old daughter and me. I start by quietly drawing a vintage, retro head (which I love doing). Next step: My daughter (who LOVES to draw) hastily snatches my sketchbook from me and draws a body and sometimes additional characters. Later, I go back and add highlights and details in acrylic paint, colored ballpoint pen, and marker. Together, they create a beautiful well as an exercise in patience (on both our parts).

These are amazing, and I love them even more knowing how they're made! Awesome!

I saw this on Facebook this morning. So many of my friends shared it that I finally had to see what the fuss was all about! And wow! This idea is so simple yet brilliant. Why hadn't my mom & I collaborated like this when I was a kid?! It's genius! I do believe your work is inspiring so many people to get back into art again. I stopped drawing years ago & this makes me want to do it again! :) (This print is my absolute favorite! I must have this!)

Beautiful Series of illustrations and the story behind their creation is wonderful.

I ordered this and never got it in the mail-nor did I get a confirmation email. However, it WAS charged to my card. Super not cool, I really like this print and want to support the artist.

This has to be my favourite piece of work by yourself and your daughter! Such an inspiration!
