BAD designer BAD!!!!!

How visually savvy are you?
I find it totally disruptive to the flow of a movie when a child characters art or drawing is shown, and it is obviously done by an adult. I don't think there is a single movie that has pulled this off successfully.
Who does these drawings?
Do they need a specialist or to just hire kids to do the drawings?
Am I the only one who notices this?
Shall I list movies ie; "Hide and Seek" " The Others" etc.?
Any suggestions on where to get info on this?

I've noticed it a few times. In spiderman, peter parker draws a very professional looking concept of his suit, complete with accurate proportions and prisma color marker rendering.

That's just part of his super-powers. It's a little known fact that spiders are excellent artists, but no one makes mechanical pencils that small.

Not so much little children, but Tom Cruise drawing Penelope in Vanilla Sky. Yea right...

There was a scary movie that played in the theatres a few years ago. Had a picture (drawn by a little girl) with an added member of the household, which turns out to be a ghost of some sort. Off the top of my head, that is of the few that I can remember where a child's drawing is actually believable.

That's The Others. I thought the child art in that movie and in The Ring was believable.

Josie Foster's drawing of Pensacola in Contact is just a little too nice for a little girl.

That does not bother me at all, since the sketches of Peter Parker's spider constume looks like any very good art & design sketch drawn out by a 16 to 19 year old boy. Peter Parker is 18 and most likely part of some art & design class and not some five year old pre-schooler.
