The Little Artist – Signs of Early Talent

I was finally able to get my scanner fixed, which means I can upload all my old drawings I found that my mom had collected during me and my sister’s entire growing up. I was quite the little artist at such an early age! And my little sister always wanted to be like me while we were growing up, so she  tried to be the little artist too. (: There are so many drawings that we have both drawn for both our parents, everything from mother’s and father’s day cards, to random drawings about nonsense. Of course, I’m only going to put up the ones worth bragging about. Here’s a little taste of my past imaginations:

I'm not too sure if I drew this or if Karen (my sister) did, but I thought it was so cute for such a young drawing - 2000?

This drawing is pretty old. I must have been 8 or 9 when I drew this one. It's a picture of Bubbles from my favorite childhood TV Show: The Powerpuff Girls. Bubbles was my favorite character.

My Corel Draw Software I used to play with. A picture of fishing from the underwater view. As you can see I was very young when I made this because the picture is messed up, lol!
