Working Together: Artist Turns Her 2-Year Old Daughter's Doodles Into Water Colors

September 10, 2014

These are several examples of the collaborative work between 2-year old Eve and her mother Ruth. Eve begins the artistic process with some doodling, then Ruth comes in and adds watercolor. The results, well-- "THEY BELONG IN A MUSEUM." Dammit Indy, not everything belongs in a museum. In this case you're right though. Still, you can't just run around yelling that at everything you see. That's like the boy who cried wolf. And you know what happened to him, don't you? Eaten by a shark.

Keep going for several more examples, a shot of the young virtuoso and a timelapse of the process.

Thanks to Judy G, who has a fun name to say out loud.

    Mom is quite a spin doctor. This is a "collaboration"?? More like recycling used paper.

  • Caroline Bond

    I think this one is much better. A female artists draws heads, and her daughter will transform them into animals.

    Feels like she draws whatever she wants over the child drawing. I like more Axecop where he draws whatever the kid comes up with.

  • zin

    She's taking "Artistic Liberties" a little too far.

  • kevin

    Yeah this is pretty much just a publicity stunt for the parent.

  • Andrew Newton

    yes, sharing what a mother and daughter is doing with the rest of the world is a nothing but a publicity stunt, you jaded motherfucker.

  • Dimitri

    What an asshole way to show your kid that you're artistically better. THANKS MOM

  • GeneralDisorder

    Man, I can't stand the type of person who just has to constantly one-up everyone they ever meet or talk to. A friend's wife is like that. Real nice person but will constantly explain why she's so much better than you in every way. I don't know how he puts up with her.

  • Dimitri

    Maybe she swallows.

  • Defenestrato

    Kids need this every now and then, lest they get an inflated ego and begin taking selfies all the time . . . .

    I like the Elephant one (he looks like Babar!) and the girl with the fox headdress :3

  • Tyguy

    ...reminded me of a Dali piece.

  • Richelle Howes

    It does have that nice surrealist look to it, but the crown makes me think of Babar the Elephant

    My water coloring never came out that good. mostly looked like wet paper.
