Childhood

Where did it go?


This was actually inspired by a conversation I had with some co-workers last Friday on how "youth is wasted on the young." Two individuals who have far more experience in life than myself felt they would have lived their lives differently if only they had the knowledge they have now. Saved more money, made less foolish decisions, and so on.

Makes me wonder, all the choices I made in childhood and how I've shaped myself into who I am today: will it end up coming back to bite me?

- After creating the initial sketch 'n inks for this, Randy asked if I was inspired by Andrew Wyeth's very famous painting since we were just talking about him earlier that day. It definitely came out unconsciously!

Whoever that co-worker was, he sounds really wise.

This a beautiful piece.

I am still young, but I honestly think life has a habit biting us no matter what decisions we make. I find more often than not thinking about looking back and judging the decisions I make as right or wrong is what paralyzes me, more often than not.

Gosh, this just beautiful. I remember being six and running in a field with grass this high. I felt like I could get lost in it.

Great illustration and successful way of expressing the concept. I think about this every day and how I wish I could get the past 20 years back just to use my energy more wisely haha. I know 30 isn't old but I'm starting to feel it after all these all nighters.
