Fantastic Young Art

My 5 year old son draws an lot lately-says he would like to do comic books of his own. I encourage his muse and present to you a few of his fantasy based offerings. I'm bugged I couldn't find his version of Tower of the Elephant-I'll find it and post it soon.

He wanted to do my book cover after I told him I would love it if he did a book cover for me someday. I like the smile on the Nephites face and the frown on the Lamanites face.
A spidery lil Cthulhu
An image from one of his favorite movies (though not mine so much) 9
The Kraken from the old Clash of the Titans, nice touch with Andromeda against the cliff walls.
Just a giant squid attacking a vampire in a boat-it could happen.
Medusa-inspired a little more from the older Clash of the the Titans
A scene from the latest Clash of the Titans movie-Perseus vs. Giant Scorpions
Halloween is his favorite holiday. This might be Nightmare before Christmas inspired.

Cool. he's channeling a little Frazetta in that Clash of the Titans piece.

Krista said...

Oh my gosh, these are so great! I love the Kraken... Perseus on Pegasus! And the giant squid vs. vampire cracked me up. FUN!

I love the squid. His first drawing looks exactly like one of my son's from years ago. Time passes waay too quickly! My son just got his driver's license yesterday!

Charles-I look forward to his coming works-he is getting better everyday.

Krista-yep these are his favorite type movies/inspiration.

kbrebes-He is very excited that I shared these and he wants to say thanks.

Bravo. I especially love Lil Cthulhu. Next you'll be having the poor kid doing storyboards.

Stewart-there's no poor kid about it I can't keep up with artwork he is blowing through my copy paper from the office.

Angie said...

Cute. What an artist. I love the book cover.

David J. West said...

Thanks Angie-I suspect that is the one he is most proud of.

The squid vs. the vampire is my favorite. I think you should write a short story for it and use the picture as the cover. (Then share the story with us.)

David J. West said...

Lisa-I am feeling so overwhelmed at the moment I don't know what I could spare for Squids VS. Vampires. I do have to say thought that I am very happy he went with a classic Nosferatu looking vampire over a pretty girly vampire.

You should clearly read Axe Cop together.
