Zak's Sketchbook 2

One thing I love about cleaning house is that I find drawings everywhere. Most of them are Zak's and most of them are just doodles or practice, but to me they are little glimpses into his mind. And he has a pretty incredible mind. 

So here is a few things I found lately that made me smile...

He made a choose-your-own-story, speed story.
He has been majorly into cartooning this year, reading tons of books about it, and filling notebook after notebook with different characters, practice faces, thought and quote bubbles, scenery, and then of course making up his own  comic strips. He made up the one below, and filled a third of a notebook with his adventures. The Bravish Knight even made a star appearance on the anniversary card Zak made for us this year, it was very charming!

The last couple of months Zak has gotten more introverted. And his work has become much more artistic rather than cartoonish. He still cartoons regularly, but very often now his other drawings are more life based. And are full of amazing detail, lighting, shadows, patterns. I am amazed constantly by his talents, so different from my own, and without instruction.

I can't wait to see what comes next.


  1. Funny and talented little artist you have there! :)

  2. Cute!
    Wish I could draw half as good :D
    Great kids you have there.
