Dane Reynolds didn’t grow up around a lot of kids. We learned this during filming of his Fairly Normal. But that was surprising because he’s such a natural dad now. Sammy is a little ball of energy living in a surreal reality I know fascinates the hell out of all of us. The animals. The Pams. The Boogies. The pigeons. The pool. The coolest parents in the game etc. Sammy’s got it made. But he does still cry…”They just cry. You’re like, ‘Oh my God, make him stop!’ But that’s just what they do. They cry,” Dane said during one Sammy tantrum during filming.
But that being said, one thing we did learn was that Sammy (and probably most kids) will stop crying if you give them distractions. We distracted Sammy with this disposable camera. Letting him fire away, and turning it on him here and there. We’d like to think these are his first published photos…which is funny because we got to run his first piece of art as well inside the sold out Issue 14. Anyway, check Sammy’s art below. And read the whole profile and interview [Norm Core, Issue 18, 2017] with Dane Reynolds in our new issue.
