these pieces crack me up. i had to post them to show the world what a proud daddy i am. my four year old daughter, alanna, found her way back to the craft bins in our house and decided to make herself some art. no help from mom or dad whatsoever, and thats what's so cool about these - uninhibited, honest, and totally her.
the first piece is "mom", lavishly ornate. true to form. her mom is a beauty. the second is me, "dad", pokey hair and plain, but goofy.
upon seeing these i immediately remembered a multimedia piece that the musician Beck did (the most under-appreciated musician/artist to ever walk the earth). i'm not saying much for his art, but my daughter's work is strikingly similar.

...and here's the story that goes with it.
i had already committed to allowing "Latter Day Bride" to use this featured wedding for their publication when "the Knot" later contacted me and said they'd like to use this same wedding as a featured wedding in their NATIONAL publication. UURRRRGH!
i admitted to "the Knot" that this wedding was already going to be published and so they withdrew their request. Latter Day Bride was very gracious about it and said they understood if i decided to drop them, but in doing so i knew it would leave them with a hole to fill (as it was down to the day of for final submission) and so would go my integrity.
it was a very tough decision, but my chances for good karma is worth it. what goes around comes around.
grab a copy of Latter Day Bride and check it out. pages 130-131. i was extremely impressed with the quality of this print and publication. salt lake market is on the up and up!
