Uh Oh! Looks like mom wants the kids to draw some chickens for her birthday to decorate her kitchen. This one is an araucana from my son. These I did while at home. Colored pencils on 8×10 paper.

 

美國刺青藝術家 Fred Giovannitti 因工作的關係,每個月有 10 天的時間會不在家而無法和家中的孩子相處,在他出門前他的孩子總喜歡畫圖讓他帶在身邊,讓他在遠行的時候能感受到孩子們的陪伴。在兩年多前,因女兒來不及把圖畫完成就將僅有線稿的半成品讓他帶出門,他好奇自己若用自己平常工作的上色方式在女兒的畫上著色會變成怎樣,進而著手進行上色的工作,回家後他將著完色的圖畫回送給女兒,女兒十分的開心也很喜歡爸爸的上色,因為這樣的一個契機,讓他開始在每一次的遠門時,都帶上孩子的畫作,在飛機上為孩子的畫作著色,回家後再將畫作交還給孩子,他說:「這些畫作並不特別漂亮,但孩子們都很喜歡。」這樣為孩子的圖畫上色的動作成了他和兒女保持親密的小互動。

On my next trip my 6 yr old son wanted to get in on the act. This time they both drew me up something. Same colored pencils, this time on 8×10 paper.

 

在他決定開始每一趟為了工作的遠行都和孩子合作繪圖之後,也開始記錄每一張上色前上色後的圖畫,但也不是每一次都會記得拍下照片,當他太興奮地想要盡快為線稿上色的時候,就會忘了記錄上色前的模樣。除了用彩色鉛筆上色,他也曾經在忘了帶彩色鉛筆出門時使用 iPad 進行數位上色,但大部分的網友普遍比較喜歡使用彩色鉛筆的作品。

一開始他也僅是以這樣的方式跟孩子互動,後來他老婆鼓勵他將這些和孩子一起完成的可愛畫作貼在網路上和大家分享,因此他上傳這些美妙的畫作在 imgur 並將相簿命名為《Coloring my kids art》在 Reddit 分享。po 上網後一天內就受到 20,0000 次的點閱,然而這樣的計畫還是持續的進行當中!

透過合作關係讓自己和孩子能更親密,就算不能花很多時間陪在孩子身邊,也能讓父子之間的心更親近,並且相互的欣賞對方的作品,讓彼此更加的喜愛對方,多用一點巧思,親子之間也是能擁有不一樣的情趣。

The first time I forgot my colored pencils on my flight, I decided to try my hand at coloring the drawings from my kids on the ol’ ipad. Needless to say, everyone loved it at home and I figured I’ll try getting better at this medium. IPad>ArtStudio

Sometimes the kids forget to give me drawings and I have to dig into my camera roll to see if there’s anything in there that might have slipped through the cracks. This is one of those. IPad>ArtStudio

My daughter, at this point 5, drew this for me saying it was an elephant boy that tells her things in her dreams. I thought this would be the neatest way to color it at the time. Colored pencils on 8×10 paper.

I got in trouble for this one. Apparently she wasn’t supposed to have a red shirt. I had to claim artistic license with my contribution and that was that. Colored pencils on 8×10 paper.

After a few months, I remembered about coloring the previous drawing and asked my daughter to draw me another one for my trip. Also colored with prismas and this time on a piece of paper from a small watercolor pad. Apparently it’s ok to go on a plane with dozens of sharpened pencils.

I did this one a few years back on a whim to see how it would look if I colored one of my 4 yr old daughter’s pictures. This is the one that started it all for me. Colored with prismacolor pencils on a small piece of scratch paper. This is also when I realized that I should take before pics.

Sometimes I just start coloring and I forget to take a before pic. This is a good example of that. Maybe you can see the black lines of the original drawing. This one is from my son, then 7. Colored pencils on 8×10 paper.
