By raise of hands, how many of you know what a dimetrodon is? Right, right, it is a dinosaur. It looked something like this.

By raise of hands, how many of you, at age 5, could make a very passable rendering of a dimetrodon with a couple of colored pencils?
I don't think I could have.
By raise of hands, how many of you have a 5 year old son who can?
*my hand is up*

Morgan drew this.

He had some help. You know those tutorials that show you step by step how to draw something, like, straight line here. Next step, funny shaped circle here. Then a little line coming from that. You know. When I use those, I end up with a picture of straight lines here or there, funny looking circles, and other lines coming from different places. When Morgan uses them, he ends up with a picture of a dimetrodon. Go Morgan!
