Chicken Nugget Lemon Tooty

One of the sites I visit regularly is Pascal Campion. His artwork is fun and lovely and a great inspiration. He recently had a post that linked to a site called, you guessed it, Chicken Nugget Lemon Tooty.

CNLT is a blog that is done by three kids, Isaac (10), Grace (9), and Lily (6). They draw, review books, and make their own drawings of art they like from the books they read. They have been doing this for 3 years, according to their site.

Their dad has decided, in honor of their 250 posts and 400 drawings (holy cow!), to invite artists who read their blog to do their own versions of the kids' drawings, like the kids do of their favorite artists.

I thought this sounded like a lot of fun! So I perused their site and found a drawing done by each of the kids. Drawing #1 is a Bunny Pirate Captain done by Lily.

We all know I like pirates! I couldn't resist!

Here's my version of Lily's pirate:

Over the next couple days I will be doing one for Isaac and Grace as well. It's a nice little exercise for me and a lot of fun. I encourage any of you who like to draw or doodle to join in, what a fun thing for those kids!


Grab a cup of coffee and sit down.
Stay a while.
