Ava Thursday: Fish book



Ava drew this not long after the famous Reading books drawing that I went ga-ga over on a previous Ava Thursday. I try and get these dry-erase drawings scanned as soon as I can because of their ephemeral nature. That's the only negative thing I would have to say about these boards: the drawings are not permanent. If your brilliant child created some fantastic drawing on one of these things, you better find some way of preserving the drawing, or else it'll end up as black smudges under your child's fingertips.

This is a book on -- what else? Fishing! I'm not sure what the exact title of the book is, but I'm sure it says something about fishing being a good thing. I asked Ava what it said at the top there, and she said she didn't remember. I love the way she drew bubbles coming up and out of the fish. The "x" is a bubble pop.

  7. I love bunny fish! It just looks so cute I wouldn't dare eat it! (The Human Association wouldn't like that act, anyway) Also, the title is a little hard to decipher (Rieri Aos Gud): maybe Ava is trying to invent a new language of her own!

  8. Hey thanks Ward. It is a little known fact that I too, used to paint graffitti. I spent much of high school in the freight yards, I even have a twist sketch and some zephyr tags in old blackbooks. I appreciate the visit, and the kind words.
