I was thinking creatively yesterday while I did chores and I was thinking of Kevin and how I might try to draw his origin story.
Who is Kevin? Well Kevin was a seed planted by The Bloggess (Jenny Lawson). Basically, Jenny and her family blame their Kevin for chores that go undone, or messes left.
I thought it was cute and started to blame our Kevin (over the last 6 months or so) for not doing the dishes at night. I tried to explain Kevin to my mother-in-law via chat, my husband and I went through various gifs trying to explain what Kevin might look like. I was originally thinking of an add-water sponge brontosaurus that grew too big for the house, like Clifford or Elliot. As I was trying to explain I realized that I actually really like our Kevin and that he was more like a friendly imaginary friend.
So I asked myself why he never helped me with the dishes. We eventually came up with Kevin is a T-rex and it’s not that he doesn’t want to help, his little arms make that task rather difficult.
I’m thinking about drawing Kevin having various adventures for this year’s Inktober, I think it might be fun.
That’s all I have for now.
Stay safe everyone! And wash your hands! 🙂
Until next time…
