Every parent thinks their child is a potential prodigy and I'm no exception. While some kids are sports stars in training or budding musicians, my five-year-old son Owen loves to draw. Even better, he's latched onto his father's love of the weird, the geeky, and the macabre.
His artwork recently caught the eye of my pal Unkle Lancifer of Kinder-Trauma and Unk has been kind enough to put a spotlight on Owen's drawings. Click over to Kindertrauma for a mini-gallery of Owen's handiwork, including his renditions of the posters for such above his age range fare * as Tobe Hooper's The Funhouse (1981) and Man's Best Friend (1993) as well as the slightly-less-scary likes of Mark Hamill as Flash nemesis The Trickster!
My thanks to Unk - I hope everybody enjoys the pics! Here's a couple more of my faves:
* For the benefit of anyone who might be concerned, I should add that Owen doesn't watch R-rated movies yet (well, except for Army of Darkness), he just loves looking at the DVD covers!
