something from nothing

Bright and Zion both like to draw, but their styles are as different as their faces.  Bright likes to recreate what he sees, and his recreations are very good!  Zion, on the other hand, who has never liked to be told what to do or how to do it, likes to look at a blank sheet of paper (or napkin or whatever) and just let the pencil do its thing.

Here is a recent drawing by Zion.  Let me tell you what you are looking at: a spaceship with two sets of landing gear, in case the ship gets flipped around while coming through the atmosphere; a tiger hiding behind rocks (probably because he is afraid of the landing spaceship); and the long rectangle across the top of the page is "space," filled with, from left, the Milky Way, a star, Saturn, the moon, and the sun.

Here is another Zion creation, doodled on a piece of scrap cardboard while in Hong Kong with Daniel earlier in the week.  You are looking at a monster underwater, surrounded by a cloud of its own stink, a tuna, a clownfish, and a whitetipped shark who is protecting his smaller fish friends from the monster.

I can't wait to see what your creativity leads to, Zion!  Hugs and kisses from Mama.
