Childhood pictures since I’m participating to the Childhood Week. Jey!

I want to show you couple of photographs from my childhood taken by my dad and mom. Don’t tell my brother that I posted a picture of him as a child since he might not be as thrilled. I know my parents won’t mind.

I cannot get over the fact how cute we look. We were best buddies with my brother as kids. He’s always been important to me, like big brothers often are.

Childhood week is a one-week-long challenge invented by Beatrice Blue. Beatrice organises it internationally twice a year. During the week you publish every day an art work inspired by your childhood. There is a prompt list you can follow (below) but it’s no way necessary. There’s no rules written on stone.

I’ve been wanting to participate for a long time. Now it was time to end making excuses. Even in the middle of commissioned work (thank you for the work!) it’s important to do my own art too. I love this chance to make personal illustrations that reflect memories from my childhood.

You can follow my illustration daily in instagram or facebook. I will post all of them here in the blog next Tuesday.

Until then: inspire and be inspired (by your childhood)!
