In May of 2008, Gideon decided he wanted to teach the kids online how to draw.  Such an ambitious desire for someone five years old. Of course I was ready with the camera to film his art instruction. Here’s a index of all of his videos, and it will be updated in the event that he decides to teach art some more in the future.

Gideon’s Art Journal: I Can Make My Own, Too!

Last night Gideon was not his usual playful Pintendo-loving self. (By the way “Pintendo” is what he calls our Nintendo, lol) instead he relaxed most of the day. Later he did play some “Pintendo” but more so he pulled out his Lightning McQueen notebook (A Christmas gift) and began to draw, and draw and draw some more!

Here’s what he came up with: (By the way these are all in the middle of the notebook, lol)

This is the front and back cover of the notebook. It’s just one we got at one of those Dollar stores in NY for a stocking stuffer.

https://i0.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d834/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

His first art in it? Well, a tracing of his hand and foot, of course.
https://i2.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d837/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Then he traced his knee (left) and drew a music note. I forgot what he called the music note. It was something like music word.
https://i1.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d841/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Then he drew some money (left) and a self portrait. Awww! He put a shirt on it (red – his favorite color) and gave him lots of hair, because he has lots of hair, lol! (He said all of this as he pushed his own hair around on his head)
https://i0.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d846/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Then he tried to write the number 1 and write One like daddy taught him to do. He did need some help spelling One, though. Then he did an 8 and tried to write eight, but he ran out of space and was mad at how he wrote his “g”. The he wrote “HFF” and Off. No one helped him spell off.
https://i1.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d848/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Then he did MNO POP. He exclaimed Hop on Pop! (A Dr. Seuss book we read from the library a while ago) Then he did a line on the right side.
https://i0.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d853/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

The he drew a ladder and a W, but his W was actually a M, lol. So I told the M to turn around. I showed him how when the M turned around it made a W. And of course, I had to tell the W to turn around and show him that it’s a M again. Oh he liked that, lol. Then he added three O’s to spell. Woooo! LOL
https://i0.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d855/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

This I think is an abstract. He didn’t tell me what it was after like he always does.
https://i0.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d858/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Another abstract, I think on the left and a thermometer (he calls them temperatures) on the right.
The image

Then some dots and another abstract.https://i0.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d864/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

A snowman (left) and another abstract.
https://i0.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d866/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Another abstract (left) and Water (right) I think he said it was “much water”
https://i2.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d870/d622/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
There’s Gideon’s drawings. Not bad for all in one night AND when he was sick (though he still denies he’s sick)

As many of you know Gideon loves to draw and he loves Spongebob! Back in September I published This photo essay with some of Gideon’s more recent drawings. This was the first time he ever drew Spongebob.

Here’s his first Spongebob drawing!

https://i1.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d784/d565/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Pretty good for a first time effort.

Well months later he got better at his Spongebob drawings. Here’s how he draws him now:

Gideon’s Latest Art

September 25, 2008 at 5:34 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , )

Original publish date: September 25, 2007 05:55 AM EDT

Tonight Gideon picked up the small notebook I’d set aside for him to draw on in the car and other times away from home. He rarely uses it, but it’s really no trouble at all to tote it along for those times when he might feel inclined to draw.

He found it on the floor by his Cars chair and asked if he could draw. I, naturally said of course and off he went. He was very intent on what he was creating. Then I heard a rip and over he came paper in hand.

What he had given me was a picture of Spongebob.

https://i1.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d255/d384/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

I took it commented on how wonderful the drawing was and he ran back to his pad making another one. Once again he tore it our and ran over to me. He’d made a snake this time.

Then he went to make a screw.

Off he went again to make another drawing.  A couple crayons this time.

And again he went off again. Then a pepperoni pizza.

A button.

And most notably a bird.

https://i2.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d261/d384/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

He wrote the word “bee”

Here’s a couple he did the other night.

Water.

https://i2.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d263/d384/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

And a caterpillar.

https://i2.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d264/d384/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

It seems that Gideon’s been bit by the drawing bug, and I just love that he’s back to creating beautiful drawings!
