One of the artists he met was George Heath of Funker Market. He makes alien monsters that have completely charmed my son. My son has saved his allowance to buy George's monsters and has also asked for them for his birthday. He likes to make up stories about them. He keeps them in a special place in his room.
Darkness Elemental Wearing Unholy Armor
This weekend, we found polymer clay on sale. I bought some for the kids and let them go to town. Both my sons decided to make monsters, inspired by George. You can kind of see George's work in the background of this picture.

George has a shop on Etsy. He makes sculptures and cards that are full of character. My son and I love the funky, funny way he describes his pieces. This Bombastic Sextipod is one of my son's favorites right now.
So thank you to George for inspiring my sons and getting them interested in art!
How about you, dear readers? Have you ever been inspired by anyone?
