When I was a child, my artistic abilities were above that of a regular kid. In elementary, I was getting high marks in the subject called MAPE (music, arts and PE) but I was always second best to this classmate of mine (who was also gay - artistry must run in the blood). But then, I was number one in all other subjects so what's let him has glory.
I made the drawing above when I was in grade 3 or 4. I used a box of pastel crayons that my brother brought me and I copied the girl in the cover of my very first photo album.
My mother put my drawing on the inside door of their closet and somehow it has survived almost 2 decades inside that closet door. Hmmm...
