When artist Mica Angela Hendricks got a new sketch book a while back, her 4-year-old daughter was insistent upon being able to try it out herself. Hendricks tried to say no, but her daughter used a phrase on her mom that she must have heard a few times herself…
"If you can’t share, we might have to take it away..."
Well, that did the trick and Hendricks her little girl finish one of the characters she’d started in the new sketchbook. This turned out to be an accidental stroke of genius.
Hendricks now regularly draws faces for her daughter to finish. After the younger artist completes her confident pen strokes, the older then fills them in with color and and their collaborative work is done.
