Childhood Memories

“Oh, I Got an Indian Arrow Head.”

I’ve been keen on the idea of comparing my childhood drawings against my adult drawings; for some reason lately I fancy comparing past and present. I suppose I am performing my own analysis of who I was versus who I am and I’m using my drawings to help connect the dots between the two. As with most of me, I’ve changed 700 Billion times over the last three decades. For example, on top below is an image I drew in 2008. Image on the bottom is one I drew in 1989- I believe I drew my little sister as she slept in church as an infant. Now given these two images side by side, one area I’ve isolated that I can site as a difference between then and now is my attention to detail. When I was a kid (in 1989 for example) I tried to be so realistic and perfect. Now, nearly 20 years later, my attention to detail has deteriorated much like a lot of my pre-programmed mindsets.

One constant, however, is the heart shows up in polar decades.
