Artist Recreates His Childhood Drawings As An Adult

July 15, 2014


This is 'Kiddie Arts', a series of digital paintings by Dutch artist Telmo Pieper inspired by the drawings he made when he was four. Clearly, his technique has improved significantly since then. Have I ever told you in kindergarten I got an 'Unsatisfactory' in coloring because I couldn't stay inside the lines? Can you believe they even graded coloring? The teacher met with my parents and they we're all, "Yeah? Well maybe our son likes to think outside the box!" even though I knew they were super disappointed. Plus when we were learning the alphabet I wrote all the letters backwards. But look at me now! "Even worse." By like ten-fold.

Keep going for nine more, including a bear and a shark and a snail!










Thanks to my buddy Brian, who was going to do the same thing until he found out his mom didn't actually save everything she hung up on the refrigerator.

    I just wanted to keep scrolling in hopes there would be more! THIS GUY'S WINNING AT LIFE!

  • These are all amazing. I am not as good at drawing even NOW. Kudos to those kid drawings!

  • Butter Biscuits McGee

    The pictures are great. I don't know if I buy that they're based off of drawings he did as a kid.

    The Tower is the Euromast in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Though from the age at when he drew the image to today, the tower has changed a bit.

    But it looks just as awesomely terrifying as any of the variety of weird-looking sharks out there.
