Before I plunge into posting Santa Barbara sketches, I thought I might show you some swords. They’re not real swords I hasten to add, that isn’t real metal, that isn’t real gold with blue Chi energy running though it. These were bought in Legoland, which actually isn’t a real land, it’s more like a theme park I suppose. My son has quite an armoury of Lego swords, which are made form a kind of hardened foam and really do take a beating – I should know, I’m usually the one getting beaten. I always need the shield to protect me from the rapid sword blows being rained upon me. I sometimes wear an Iron Man mask to give me some more protection, but unfortunately it doesn’t record, predict and counteract all of my opponent’s moves like the real thing. These are great fun, I must admit. I drew them in the Book of My Son’s Things. We will go back to Legoland, California, this summer, to spend more money, as you do. I love it.
Haha, “draw your swords”, haha, I just got that.

Ha, ha! Red card!
I too can testify to the stinging thunk of one of those foam Lego swords on parental flesh. Great drawings.
They hurt a lot less than his plastic swords though, i must say. I’ve got a fair few bruises from those!
My kids have got wooden swords and daggers. Those are the worst.
a dragon sword… :)
