Both these drawings are better than my drawings of a whale

Kiddie Arts by Telmo Pieper (All Rights Reserved; Used with Permission)

There are two things that I love about digital artist Telmo Pieper recreating drawings from childhood. One is that the images are beautiful and fantastically odd in the uninhibited way children capture so well. The second is that Pieper’s childhood drawings look like any other kid’s drawings (or my drawings as an adult). Pieper demonstrates that being the young, technical prodigy beloved by your second grade art teacher is not a necessary prerequisite for growing up to be a talented, professional artist.
