As I mentioned before, I have been posting fan art created by yours truly while we are here in Florida to avoid the chilly winter back home in Mass.
So, each and every day, I spend some time drawing, coloring and painting with my daughter, Sophia. I do this because:
1. I love spending time with her.
2. I learned how to create art by my mum doing the very same thing with me.
3. One day (hopefully) she can take over, and Ang and I can retire.
Every morning over coffee and sippy cups, I ask Soph what she wants me to draw and we color it. Sometimes its mommy and daddy. Sometimes its Mickey Mouse. Sometimes its Meno…or even a Gzonk or two…and sometimes its Elton John. 1970’s glam-rocking-piano-pounding Elton John. Crocodile Rock Elton John to be exact.
Since she saw him on The Muppet Show, she (like her dad) fell in love with the falsetto “la-la-la-la-laas” of my fav bespectacled pop-rocker. We’ve even made him out of Legos (which I will have to take a photo of). But, here now, our tribute to the Elton John of yesterday, as rendered in Sharpie, crayon, markers, paints, and Spongebob stickers…enjoy!
