Last week we received what we can only describe as the BIGGEST box of art supplies we have ever seen. Household name, Crayola (based in Pennsylvania, USA) had sent Jack, Toby & Noah, dozens of their products. They stood with mouths open at the amount of stuff they had received.
THANK YOU so much to Stacy Gabrielle for her kind donation. At the rate Jack goes through pens, it will probably last 2 weeks!
In true "pay it forward" style AND at Jack’s suggestion, we have gathered up a share of this donation and have passed it on to Noah’s Toddler group in Port Seton and some will find its way to the Sick Kids.
Bumps & Bairns plays a very important role in the history of Jack Draws Anything. Bumps & Bairns is run by close friends (David & Natalie Lees) and it was at their craft fair earlier this year (in Haddington) where it all began.
This is the craft fair where Jack was taken along as punishment while his brothers got to go visit their Grandma & Grandad. It is here where he saw his Mummy selling her craft and his Dad selling his jumble that gave him the idea to sell one of his pictures to family friend Anne Peattie for 20p.
Bumps & Bairns donated a whopping £50 for Jack to draw them a new logo. Unfortunately, he doesn’t know what BAIRNS means so thought it was BEARS, hence the Teddy Bear. The 3 little hills represent baby bumps of 3 different coloured ladies (complete with bellybuttons). How very multicultural.
Hope you like it!
Please note, Jack has drawn non–alcoholic rum.
The amazing thing about this wee project is that Jack’s pictures have ended up in many strange places. One of the strangest (so far) was for a big web conference in London called Web Directions @media.
As a Web Superhero myself for a living, to receive an email from Web Standards guru Bruce Lawson is pretty cool. The normal man in the street may not know him, but for me, its cool. Bruce writes books on building websites, talks about web issues and is a prominent figure in the scene. He currently works for Opera.
He was speaking on DRM (Digital Rights Management) at said conference and asked if Jack could draw Letters DRM looking big and ugly and scary. Bruce wanted to use Jack’s picture as a slide and in exchange he would put up Jack’s picture and tell all the web geeks and nerds all about Jack Draws Anything.
So the conference happened a couple of weeks ago and we just got a photo through from Bruce of him in action with Jack’s giganticest picture so far:
Thank you very much Bruce, you rock! Jack loves the fact his picture is HUUUUUGE!
