So I'm sitting in my dentist's office the other day, leafing through the magazine stack. Motor Trend or Family Fun. Tough choice. (I chose Family Fun). And I realized, being child-deficient myself, that kids magazines are a pretty good source of photo references of kids! Not better than drawing from life, but should tide me over until it's nice enough to hang out around the playground, looking slightly pervy. Lucky thing I'm a woman. How do other childless illustrators draw from life? (Anybodeee? Anybodeee?)
So I did these sketches from my newly-purchased copies of Family Fun and Baby Couture ("We Put the 'coo' in Couture". No joke, that's their slogan). It was pretty fun to bring those magazines home to give my fiance (of all of 2 months) a heart attack.
