In October of 1971 I was 2 years old- would be turning 3 on December 31st. Mom recently sent me these scans of what may be my earliest artistic renderings. This first piece looks somewhat suspiciously like a mandala. :o)
I began wearing glasses at the age of 4, so I'm wondering what the world looked like to me prior to that time. This one seems to depict a person with a deformed mouth surrounded by faceless people. Or donuts.
Similar to the previous image, another person with a deformed mouth and more faceless donut people.
I wonder who this is? Is it Ernie from Bert & Ernie on Sesame Street? I loved Ernie - and interestingly... I only just remembered that while writing this post.
