ARTIST SERIES: Talking with Jesse, age 4


This post is the first in our ARTIST SERIES where we will focus on artists and/or artwork that simply strikes our fancy. Anytime. Anywhere.


Jesse, age 4, takes time out of her busy preschool schedule to talk with Rob, creator of Platypus Designer Duct Tape, to answer four important questions about the genesis of  ”The Birth of Snowmans.”

(Interestingly, Jesse herself has a head of spiral curls just like Botticelli’s angel in the “Birth of Venus.” Hmmmm….)

ROB:  Say….Jesse, I like your snowman art soooooo much! Can you tell me more about it? Where did you paint this art?

JESSE: I painted it at the art building. It was with a class.

ROB: Why did you decide to paint these snowmen?

JESSE: The teacher asked us to do it. It was a picture she wanted us to do. She said she liked mine.

ROB: What is your favorite thing about these snowmen?

JESSE: My favorite part is the noses. Them was super easy to make. I like the white part too.

ROB: Do you like snow?

JESSE: Yes. Because I like sledding, and I like sledding with Daddy. I want to practice ice skating, building snow castles, and make Snowmans!


Jesse’s use of color is really great especially the gradient midnight sky. And the pop of the orange she chose especially warms our hearts. We think would look great in an old frame revamped with Modern Houndstooth.

Yep, Jesse’s Snowmans are pretty awesome.

And we thank her for sharing with us today!
