Family Sketchbook Project

{family sketchbook project}
One sketch a week from any family member who’d like to take part.
Just fun. No pressure.

This week I’m sharing A book Chase wrote last week. We haven’t had much time for doodling over the past week because we spent so much of it on the road. But this book really caught my attention. At this time last year I was still wondering if she would ever be interested in writing! This little book has it all, a title, an author and illustrator, a beginning, middle and end, some naughty deeds and a little math thrown in for good measure. Without further ado, The Zombies by Chase

zombies come to town


One night two zombies came into town. They were very scary. (I LOVE the lamp post and all the attention that she gave to the buildings’ many windows.)

zombies left and rightOne went to the left and one went to the right. One was noisy and one was quiet. (I love the way she shows them going off in their respective directions and tries to show changes in their spatial relationship by pushing the buildings off the page.)

zombie beach

One went to the beach and pushed down all the trees on the beach. (Mischief!)

zombies forest


And one went to the forest and met another zombie. (Mayhem!)


And that nite when they went home they had a party. (Math and cake!)

She was super excited about the finished product which she taped together. Today she drew a little fish. When I asked her how she did it she told me that she used the zombie stencil to trace half a zombie. Apparently there isn’t only one way to use a zombie stencil.
