Stickmen (Of A Sort)

Alex has had a resumed interest in drawing recently. I must admit I hadn’t really been paying too much attention to what he was drawing until he handed me this drawing. This is the first time his faces have had bodies – and even fingers and toes if you look closely!

    Wow…that little baby bat has some serious teeth!
