Today's drawings are inspired by a conversation I had yesterday evening with friends who are the parents of small children. They were talking about the tried-but-true method of discipline that is the wooden spoon. Simple, elegant yet effective. The four year old son of these friends had recently decided to rise up against his wooden oppressor by stating "That didn't hurt" after being disciplined.
So that brave, defiant (and ornery) young man was my inspiration for today.
