Survivor

Do Something Yummy is an initiative to raise awareness and support of childhood cancer charity CLIC Sargent. We are following the journey of Nickie at Typecast, who has given us writing prompts each week to inspire us to create posts that make people stop and think about the devastating effects of this disease on young people and their families. This week she gave us the option to draw what we see when we hear the word Survivor:

I knew immediately what to draw, and Mummy swears I have not seen the news in recent weeks, so this representation of the bizarre sinking of a ship in Italy recently is merely a coincidence:

"Survivor"See how the man overboard miraculously gtows hair and and acquires a life-jacket once he hits dry land? Impressive survival skills,eh?

The Bug went a little bit darker with his survivor:

"Dinosaur survivor"The poor little man on the right has been attacked by a very tall dinosaur. Luckily he had his laser-gun handy, which he used to emit supersonic rays which evaporated Monsieur dino’s head into a cloud of black smoke. His words, not mine…

    Loving these pictures – and especially that the Bug incorporated a dinosaur into it ;)

    I love looking at childrens pictures – it never ceases to amaze me what goes in their little minds, you seem to see things through pictures that you just don’t find out through talking!

    Seeing Bug’s picture I am somewhat relieved that my child wasn’t the only one that used guns and swords in his picture.
