'Scary Mommy' Jill Smokler Collects Awful Mom Portraits Drawn By Kids (PHOTOS)

When you give kids pencils, paper and free rein to express their feelings, their creations can be startling, heartwarming and hilarious. And when the assignment is to create a portrait of mommy, the results are predictably off-the-wall.

It all started when Jill Smokler of Scary Mommy shared a likeness of herself drawn by her son, remarking upon the "uncanny" resemblance between the face in the picture and a certain reality-show matriarch.

Smokler then asked her Facebook followers to join in by posting their own kids' mom-portrait artwork ("awful" drawings preferred), and they obliged -- with pictures that show everything from a cat-woman lookalike and a potential "Walking Dead" understudy to an (inexplicably) nine-breasted wonder.
