Mostly he likes bands from the British Invasion, and classical music. He draws orchestras quite frequently, and has been moving his way through various aspects therein. He went through a lengthy violin phase, and currently he's "into" conductors. When he's not drawing, he's conducting--with gusto-- using a large, wooden knitting needle his Nana turned into a conductor's baton for him.
This is his favourite piece to conduct. I've heard it approximately googleplex times:
Wilhelm Furtwangler Conducts Beethoven's 9th Symphony
A lot of his pictures are based on his imaginary band, "The Hho" (yeah, I know), which is comprised of Jack and some of his favourite stuffed toys. Usually they are based on 1960's footage of his favourite British bands.
You can see more of Jack's art here:
Jack's Art 2!
Go on and have a look. I insist! Ha ha--that's what proud mothers do, right?
Here are some of the pics Jack has drawn over the summer. I had to scan them in in secret because the little ARTISTE flips if I even touch his drawings.
