Graphic Designer or Model?

I realize Declan has a leg up in the art category, given the fact that both his parents are graphic designers. But, sometimes I think graphic design is just encoded in his genes, because I swear, we didn’t influence these two little illustrations Declan did (at all! I swear!) when he was holding “school.”

Notice how the kids in perspective? And how the third one seems irritated to be so far back in line?

And I love how he got fancy with Bryan’s name on this one. Experimenting with typography early. Oh God, I think I am going to cry. I also appreciate that his principal is in need of rogaine just as much as I am.

Now. I realize I haven’t posted photos of the boy in a while. Stop emailing me about it (mom)! YOU try to get him to sit actually pose for you! He thinks I burned through my photo quota with him already when he was a baby.

But miracles of all miracles, he let me snap off a few last weekend. Thank god! I can actually head home to Maryland this weekend and they’ll let me in the door.

Damn cute if you ask me.

    Very cool. You should get one of those handwriting fonts for him!

    His future (as in: 30 more years) wife will thank you for his well documented childhood cuteness. So do you scan in his artwork and chuck the original? Or am I the only cold hearted bitch who does this? I loathe clutter.

    That’s awesome – especially the how he wrote the name and the perspective of the people. Really talented! And what comes to modeling – he is just soooo cute!

    OMG, he’s gonna be such a heartbreaker!!!

    And he seems to be a ham for the camera too…that is, when he allows you to take some pics!

    I love his expressions.

    Have a great time with your family!

    Y’know my kids won’t pose for me either – or when one or two will someone (or some two) just become royal jerks.

    Enjoy the East Coast. I wish B’more was closer to Bahston.

    What a cutie!

    AWESOME photos! He definitely is cute, but your talent shows from the photos.

  19. Nadine

    And of course the drawings totally rock too! Tim is no where near drawing like that, but I am proud anyway. He draws one line and says CAR! Life is so simple when you’re just 2 ūüôā

  20. Christina

    That little man of yours is gonna break hearts when he’s older. And his personality is practically leaping through the photos. Awesome!
