As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

I am ecstatic! It is coming together really well. As I remember it I wasn't so much sad as serious, even at that age I was doing a lot of thinking. One of the things I remember exercised my mind was that I didn't seem to have as much to talk about as my friends. I think I was a sponge at that age, soaking everything up. Come to think of it I haven't changed all that much.

Connor, I smiled when I saw the bit about the stitches in the shirt. I think it was Steve Bell who had to do some cartoons of John Major when the story about his affair came out. He said he'd forgotten how long it took to draw the underpants!

Looking  at Stanley as a boy photograph. He really has a knowing look  , beyond his years. Its an interesting one to draw . I have a good one of my grandson  which i intend to draw  sometime.

Google says the link is wrong..... Give us the Wallace and Grommit link Connor, more reliable. Bring it up on the site, copy the address and paste it into the topic.

I altered the title quite a long time ago Connor as it was so focussed on you. Nobody objected. Lovely to see it developing and nice to hear that your mum is taking a close interest. Take your time, no rush.

I think I was quite sad but not depressed. Remember it was a hard time, new at school, air raid warnings every night and streets covered in shrapnel. As I said before, I think the expression is best described as serious, I was thinking a lot.

"I think the expression is best described as serious, I was thinking a lot. " - - Stanley.......and he still is!

All the worries of the world on a little boy's shoulders. I think I know how you felt, Stanley - I sometimes think that I was born as an adult.

 It's a fantastic picture Connor, your mum must be proud of you!

HI EVERYONE!!!! its conors mum, melanie.... conors out to a BBQ with friends, so have sneaked onto his laptop. first of all thankyou to all of you that have been encouraging conor with his drawings and being so kind to him. (but he is capable to take critisium! in fact he thrives on it. he wont burst into tears. i think he is a very talented young lad and is very level headed with it.

The drawing that he is doing for stanley is really capuring my heart, im falling in love with the little lad and i keep popping in to see his progress, i think your going to love it stanley as the photos really dont do it justice. as for the expression, to me his little eyes have seen things that no 4 year old should have to see, just to know that your wearing a label with your name on in case your killed is bound to carry a sadness, something a child should never have to think or worry about. and i think it shows in the expression which makes the drawing so different from a straight faced expressionless portrait. its captured me and i love it.

Morning Melanie, I hope he gets plenty of grub down his neck at the BBQ! I can only speak for myself but I think you should realise how much we are getting out of Connor. We hear far too much about the shortcomings of today's children and it's a delight to have someone like Connor not only participating on the site but conversing as well. It says a lot for the way you have reared him so we ought to be thanking you. I think you ought to make it a condition of accepting the commission that he buys you Volume I of me memoirs  (tell him to go to Lulu.com and search for Stanley's Story) because you'll get so much more out of the picture if you know the story behind it. Also, I often think we should give a thought to the school photographer who made the picture in the first place. It's obvious that he saw something in my face, if he hadn't he wouldn't have done such a wonderful job, this is not a run of the mill school photograph, he was a good man. Funny that, I say man but of course it could have been a woman. Nice to know you like it, we liked the drawing of you as well.....
