Artist Collaborates with 4-Year-Old Daughter to Create Cool, Quirky Illustrations

Artist Mica Angela Hendricks didn't intend to share her new, special-ordered sketchbook with her 4-year-old daughter, Myla. In a post on Hendricks's blog, she wrote that she thought her daughter would be too engrossed with her own markers to see the sketchbook with dark paper. But, of course, Myla did notice and said very seriously, "If you can't share, we might have to take it away if you can't share."

Surprised, Hendricks gave in and allowed her young daughter to draw bodies onto heads she sketched from vintage black and white movie stills. Then, Hendricks revisited the drawings, adding color, texture, and highlights.

Hendricks told Yahoo Shine that Myla can be critical of the finished artwork. "But the best times are when she gasps in excitement and says, 'We made such a beautiful thing!'" she said. Take a look at the very cool and very imaginative results of their collaboration. -- Ali Swank
