Inspire Me Thursday: Bringing Child's Art to Life

The topic over at 'Inspire Me Thurs' this week is 'Bringing Child’s Art to Life'.

"This week, let us be inspired by South Korean photographer Yeondoo Jung’s series Wonderland, a collection of amazing photographs in which he brilliantly brings children’s crayon drawings to life. "

I know! Cool, right?
So cool, I had to give it a shot.


So here goes.

Exhibit A:

Felt pen/Markers on paper

Drawing
made by a little me a long long time ago.
(I don't remember exactly when this picture was made, but I think it would be safe to say its from at about 11-14 years ago)

Exhibit B:

Digital Vector

It's reproduction by the 23 year old me of today!

Ta-da!

Hmm.

Are you thinking you like the original one better?

Sigh.

Yeah, me too.

:)

More drawings from the early years below:

The paper is a bit yellowed due to years of storage (found these in a truck full of books at my grandparents place) but the scan really isn't doing some of those florescent marker colours any justice!

I'm thinking I ought to frame one of these.
I'm kinda partial to the last one with the turkey/peacock bird and strange creature in oranges and blues.

What do about you?

:D

Cheers,
Radha

I love your sense of color! This is fabulous. Love all of them, but I'm with you..the last one is a real prize!

Awww, these are soooo cool.It's evident that your talent came early. I can see your budding creativity and great color sense. What a fun project to redraw one. I like what you did. Obviously more sophisticated while keeping a childlike wonder. Good stuff Radha!

Hi Radha. I love what you've done here. The whole post is great - loved seeing all the pictures from when you were young. What you've got here is so similar to what I put on my blog. We're the same age too! Perhaps there was a particular style of childs art in the eighties! :) Glad to have come across your wonderful blog in cyberspace and looking forward to seeing more of your art.
