Off To The Beach

Justin, Joi and Bubut went to the beach today in Batangas. I bet you they'll be drawing plenty of beach scenes in the next few days. I can't wait to post em here.

I'm inviting other kids as well to send in your drawings. It would give us all a good idea how different kids see the world around them. Draw pictures of your favorite things. Or draw pictures of what you would like to be when you grow up. Or draw pictures of what happened around you today.

Got drawings you made years ago? Post em here! Those are priceless!

E-mail them to

Evolution of Art

As I was going through Justin's drawing, I was amused to see how from simple lines and stick figures, his style evolved into more complicated and anatomically-correct figures.

As kids age and learn what can and what cannot be, so too their points of view change accordingly. As they learn that they live in a regimented society rigidly bound by norms, they realize that they too must comply.

Innocence lost.

Here's a FUN fact : Pablo Picasso started drawing around age 7, and among his first words was "PIS" which was short for "LAPIS" or pencil. From simple childish doodles, Picasso's style would eventually evolve into masterpieces worth tens of millions of dollars today.

So kids, start doodlin'.
