An interview with our resident artist

Shane Shares (SS): Hello, sir. What is the name of your piece?
Tater Tot (TT): "Body Parts"
SS: What inspired you to draw this?
TT: Well, um, my brain just thought of it and I drew it.
SS: How long have you been drawing?
TT: Ten years and 10 months (he is 6 years old)
SS: Are you going to be an artist when you grow up?
TT: Yeah
SS: Is there anything you'd like to say about your drawing?
TT: Yes. I worked really hard and if you don't like it I'm sorry. Remember I'm only six years old.
SS: Well, I love it. Thank you for taking the time to speak with me Mr. Tater Tot.

  1. What a relief to pull up the bigger picture of Payton's drawings! from a distance, it looked "intersting". Please tell me that you wrote the words???? If not, he writes as good as he draws!
    by the way, I updated my blog.

  2. I know...imagine my shock when he handed it to me! Yes, I did write the names of each body part on the drawing. I figured, I don't want to run across it 15 years from now (without the words) and wonder what kind of son I was raising.


Yippee! I love it when you leave me comments. Thanks a bunch. :)
