Ava Thursday: Ava & Matt Collaboration
Ava drew this with her cousin, Matt, during the Christmas holidays of 2004. Ava was 4 and Matt was 7. I want to call this "When Crayola Spaceships Attack!" It's a big drawing, about 11" x 14".
You can tell that Matt did most of what you see on the right side, with Ava following Matt's lead over on the left. This was a big moment for Ava and her artistic development because here, she was carefully watching her cousin in the way he drew all the characters and spaceships. Before, her drawings were done very quickly with simple shapes. But after drawing with Matt during his visit, her drawings became much more developed and intricate.
