Busy Bees Gym logo for The Great Outdoor Gym Company

This is a ‘forgotten drawing’ — during a very busy 2012, we completely forgot to put this awesome artwork onto Jack’s website. Sorry everyone!

Jack received an email from Georgie at The Great Outdoor Gym Company in England. She asked Jack if he could design a logo for their new Busy Bees Gym range, in exchange for a three–figure–donation to The Sick Kids Friends Foundation.

She had seen Jack on the Pride of Britain Awards and heard him mention that his favourite thing to draw was a Bumblebee.

The Great Outdoor Gym Company designs outdoor gyms for adults & children and their new Primary School outdoor gym range is called the Busy Bees Gym.

Jack was more than happy to help, he loves drawing bees.

Jack was very happy with his logo. Just like a real Graphic Designer, Jack’s logo made it into TGOGC’s corporate brochure and onto their website.

Here are some screenshots of his logo in the wild:

California Jack draws on Stinson Beach

Jack and his family made the short but dangerous and breathtaking trip along California’s Highway 1 this weekend to visit Stinson Beach. Jack and his brothers had a great time paddling, building sandcastles and playing beach volleyball.

Jack however found another use for the golden Californian sand and some driftwood.

Can you tell what it is yet?

Final touches, an eye and his signature.

Finished, Jack wants to dedicate this bumblebee to the hundreds of people who have asked him to draw a bumblebee these last few weeks!

6 year old predicts 1-0 Scottish Cup Final win for Hibs (and swarm of bees) through his art?

In honour of tomorrows Scottish Cup Final between Edinburgh clubs Hearts and Hibs, Jack has looked out all the Hibs and Hearts pictures that he drew last year for his marathon drawing campaign to raise funds for the Sick Kids Hospital in Edinburgh.

Here they are, in the order Jack drew them (the numbers represent the order he completed them). Hand on heart, Beaver Scouts honour, this is what Jack drew.

Jack is not really a football man, nor is a fan of Hearts or Hibs but make of this what you will. Was this some sort of premonition? Modern day Nostradamus? Is Jack the next Octopus?

Farm with some animals and a grey tractor for Karen McKessar

Jack decided to expand on this picture greatly and all in all took about an hour to do this. His explanation:

“It is a hedgehog party on a farm with bumblebees. The bumblebees are babies and the hedgehogs are the Mummy & Daddies. They are welcoming their babies back from the Winter because they have been hibernating. There is a swimming pool and lots and lots of presents. There are fireworks and much more.”

The hedgehogs are silver because they are dressed in party clothes.

Aeroplanes for David Harris

David’s request was quite open and merely asked for aeroplanes. Jack decided to draw 3 baddy planes (red ones), one of which has been shot down. The 3 goody planes on the left (all with forcefields) are each flown by Mr Pricklepants (his toy hedgehog), Green the Dinosaur (his toy dinosaur) and Beebee (his toy Bumblebee). I think I have explained it correctly!

Jack’s Grandma & Grandad recently returned from a holiday in Liverpool and knowing how much Jack liked bees, brought him back a wee cuddly toy. It is now one of Jack’s best friends. Sarah had originally requested something else from Jack but unfortunately due to the huge demand in pictures, Jack couldn’t do it in time. Instead they asked Jack to draw anything he wanted so Jack jumped at the chance to do his new pal.
