The Pictoral Book of Grievances

In the absence of being able to write* Matei has been turning to drawing in order to document the violations of order and propriety he witnesses on a daily basis (mostly ones done by his sister). He has taken to this project with the commitment and dedication of a Stasi and usually collates the evidence and presents it to me on a daily basis.

So here are some extracts from his Burn Book:

Helena stealing Matei's Spiderman toy

Here the young artist has pictured the theft of his Spiderman toy by his own sister. I believe her extra-long legs convey something of the speed of this act through her extra-long legs, and fiendish intent through her gloating smile.

Helena jumping on the beanbag

Here Helena has been caught repeatedly causing havoc and disorder by jumping on the beanbag. I like how the artist has depicted action.

Helena trying to pick up the cat

Here the young artist has shown his sister attempting to pick up the cat. The cat's fatness is evident, as is his sister's complex manual manoevering.

Helena picking flowers

And here the young ruffian is caught picking the petals from flowers. Her debonair smile testifies to her lack of remorse.

Overall a bleak and damning portrait of character I am sure you will agree.



*Aside from wishing his teachers a "Meri Krismas"

Me too.
I am really looking forward to the stage when they graduate from 'scribble' to 'thing with recognisable shape'.
