Dis­claimer: This has been all over the inter­net this week­end. I orig­i­nal­ly dis­cov­ered it from a tweet by Antho­ny (@nedroid) yes­ter­day, but have since seen it post­ed every­where from The Verge to This Is Colos­sal. It’s sim­ply too good to pass up and def­i­nite­ly one of my favorite things I’ve seen this year.

Pro­fes­sion­al illus­tra­tor Mica Angela Hen­dricks (aka busy­mock­ing­bird) is real­ly good at what she does, one of them being draw­ing retro, vin­tage heads. Recent­ly, she’s upped her game by col­lab­o­rat­ing with a spe­cial some­one — her 4 year old daugh­ter.

It start­ed inno­cent­ly enough with her daugh­ter sneak­ing in some lines and scrib­bles to cre­ate bod­ies for the faces. « Not sur­pris­ing­ly, I LOVED what she drew. I had drawn a woman�s face, and she had turned her into a dinosaur-woman. It was beau­ti­ful, it was care­free, and for as much as I don�t like to share, I LOVED what she had cre­at­ed. Flip­ping through my sketch­book, I found anoth­er doo­dle of a face I had not yet fin­ished. She drew a body on it, too, and I was enthralled. It was such a beau­ti­ful com­bi­na­tion of my style and hers. And she LOVED being a part of it. She never hes­i­tat­ed in her intent. She wasn�t ten­ta­tive. She was insis­tent and con­fi­dent that she would of course improve any illus­tra­tion I might have done. �And the thing is, she DID. »

Later, Mica would use her tal­ents to go back and add color, paint and details to bring the impro­vised col­lab­o­ra­tion to life. The results are jaw-dropping. I still can’t get over how well their two tal­ents mesh togeth­er. Read her orig­i­nal post that details the entire process and if you’d like, she’s even put up a bunch of the final prints for sale at Soci­ety6.
