drawing like children

Sometimes people ask if our drawings are done by children.

Children's drawings:
lines out of control
crazy colors
no sense of proportion
no planning so things fall off the page
coloring out of the lines
can't spell
random subject matter
try to copy grownups

It'd be crazy if we drew like children, and could still make a living selling our artwork.

Having said that, there is still something very intriguing about children's drawings!!
I think it is the fact that they can have so little control over their hands...their drawings are not polished. They have nothing to hide I guess.
I drew this cheetah with my 4 year old nephew. Kid-grownup collaboration
