SELF-PORTRAIT DISGUISES

Henry (age 8) was struggling to think of what to cover yet another new school book this term with (it's hard being eight). I suggested a self portrait, which he thought was a good idea. After drawing himself, he asked me to reduce the picture down in size, filling an A4 sheet with them so that he could draw himself in nine different guises. I kept the mini copies light in colour so that he could draw over them easily. Here's what he came up with.

Sir Willoughby from The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, by Joan Aiken.
Thank you Nancy, he loved it.

Gwin, from Inkheart, by Cornelia Funke.
Aunty Salt, you did very well; he is now obsessed. As am I.

Pops has never had more hair than in this rendering. He'll be delighted.

Yaya, you look beautiful in your blue and black necklace and matching earrings.
