Nathan's Fantastical Beast Drawings

Nathan has been inspired to copy illustrations from Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You which can be bought here.  He has been practicing with his Prismacolor pencils and blender.

Wow! He's got the style down...right to the handwriting! Keep encouraging him and buying those (expensive!) pencils!

I saw an interview with Tony DiTerlizzi once, and he was saying that this is exactly how he draws. He looks at the works of artists he admires as he is drawing and copies and then adds his own flare. His blog is worth checking out.

Clearly your son is talented, too!

Thank you all! I will see if I can find that interview. I didn't think about checking out his blog! I did think about how Ben Franklin learned to write well by reading others' writings.

Hi, I stumbled across your blog and love it. I'm tutoring a young boy who's home-schooled and needs a lot of support in reading. I have him working through a program called Ready2Read from another blog I ran across. He is responding to it quite well. My challenge now is to find a way for him to catalogue the words we are studying. I'm looking for a good printable dictionary. Your boys are much older, but I was hoping you may have run across something like this?
