!nsp!re – 12 Days of Cre8tivity: Collaborating

Post 11 of 12

Today’s share comes from Mica Hendricks, an illustrator and graphic artist who blogs here. A few months ago, she created this post. She had received a new sketchbook and had started several illustrations when her 4-year old daughter asked to help. Mica begrudgingly allowed her to do so and was fascinated by the outcome. That inspired her to create more pieces that her daughter would work on as well. She took the finished illustrations and began filling them in with acrylics. The finished pieces are very unique. I think her story is a great example of keeping yourself open. Even though she was initially hesitant about sharing the experience with her daughter; she let go of something she wanted in order to allow another to participate and the end result was beyond her imagining.
