Dec 6, 2013: Children's line drawings, colored



Tattoo artist Fred Giovannitti flies across country once a month, and as a hobby, he started taking his kids' line drawings on the plane with him... and coloring them.

Huffington Post documents it: see all 12 drawings

Quote:
My children like to draw me pictures for my trip so I can keep them close to me while I'm away. One day my daughter didn't get around to making me a picture in time, so right before I left she quickly drew me a line drawing to take with me. On my flights to work I keep a sketchbook to draw on the plane and have colored pencils handy. This one particular trip, instead of drawing in my sketchbook, I decided to color in my daughter’s drawing in the manner in which I would color my own work.

I saw the rest on Huff Post. This family has found a way to pay for college for the kids. They do the line art, dad the colorization and sell them in galleries/on line. Congrats... jobs well done. thank you

He's play fast and loose with the word "coloring". He's shading and adding considerable detail. He could make even my scratchings look good.

They are awesome. I like how they really honor the original, but are great on their own.
