Every school day my son requests his doodle...the one I draw on his snack bag. At times elaborate, whimsical, topical, but mostly just whatever he is into at the moment. I am NOT an artist, but indulge this request each day for fun. This is a daily musing about his requests.

Last night as I prepared dinner, Oscar set up the living room for his performance. Yep, I run a supper club in Brooklyn for the kindergarten set. All were in attendance, and in some cases, a part of the actual show (poor Saturday). I sat between the muskrat skull and the dragon sipping my beverage - Oscar launched into his "act" which comprised of the guinea pig being drawn out of Oscar's knit cap and some guess-which-hand coin tricks. Good times. This morning Oscar asked that I immortalize it by way of the doodle, but with a real magician. I've got to be honest...there's no way I want to draw David Blaine or David Copperfield or any David really. Oscar has no idea who any of those dudes are, and if I expose him to G.O.B. (my personal fave) his dream of being an illusionist - short lived as it may be - will be lost. Nope, sticking to jokey cartoon-like guy with requisite good-natured rabbit sidekick.Happy Magical Thursday :) xoxo
