Misa and Max Designs

My son Max is five years old. He draws and makes collage-type gift cards. He was interested in making images from an early age, but only recently his drawing advanced beyond pure scribble, to recognizable pictures.

Max is completing his last summer session at ABC PreSchool. To thank and honor his teachers, he drew these images. Misa scanned and printed them onto transfer film, then ironed the film onto the cloths. They made aprons for the female teachers and one black T-shirt for the male teacher.

I'll write more on parenthood in another post. Its rewards are much greater than I'd imagined. Greater also are the demands it makes on us. Misa gives all her energy and patience to Max, and I couldn't face the job without her.
