This is a sample of Griffin's artwork on his Doodle Pro. To me it looks like a head with legs & feet but when I asked him who it was he said "Big Bird". Hey, who am I to judge? This looks like something a typical kiddo of 4 years might do whether or not they would call it Big Bird I don't know but that's beside the point. I was just happy to see him holding the pen correctly. I think that it's pretty cool that he got the ears , eyes, nose, mouth, and hair in the right spot all that's missing are the body and the arms . So, we can work on that but for now, I say "Good for you Griffin, excellent work little man!"

I think that is AWESOME!!! Griffin is using his imagination!!! It obviously doesn't look like Jim Henson's Big Bird, but Griffin has decided that, with his imagination, that it IS. HUGE steps in autism!!!!

Hi Lora and Griffin,

I can see why Griffin didn't give him arms because bird's don't have arms they have wings. He most definitley is trying to make Big Bird and I think it's beautiful. Excellent work Griffin! He has a great imagination:)

That's Big Bird for sure. I see wings there, and the big feet. Griffin decided to give him a slightly different style, a little flip in the front. Well done, Griffin!!!

Maybe Big Bird like beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I agree with you, Good work Griffin. I also the the picture in the post below. It is wonderful to see him able to take so much pride in his accomplishments.
