Designing with kids

We wrote a few days ago about Mica Angela Hendricks, who let her daughter draw in her sketch book and created some amazing art.

Here’s another post about parent/ child art collaborations: The Original Thread created a dinosaur pattern for a competition on Spoonflower, using her children’s dinosaur drawings as a basis for the design. She explains how she took the original drawings, altered them slighty (with the approval of her children) and involved her daughter in the colour selection for the final design. The results are charming! See the drawings from all stages of the process on The Original Thread blog.
