Optimus

The boy's obsession and passion for this invincible race remains strong.

After a few hours of undivided attention, M completed this Optimus piece with much delight and pride. His latest this week.

For a 7-year-old, we think he did good.




In the last few months, he gave away so many drawings as presents to his classmates. Every piece was complicated with proportionate features and looked incredibly life-like. Each was indeed a labour of love and passion. 

It was hard for me to watch him spend so many hours a week drawing and colouring pieces after pieces only to have them given away in the end. 

The thought that some of his painstakingly created masterpieces may not be cherished by the recipients just breaks my heart. I don't even want to consider the possibility of them ending up in the waste paper baskets the day he sent them out. 

Sigh. But what to do? The boy insisted on being so generous. 

Looking at his drawings, I can't help but wonder: what was I drawing when I was 7-year-old?

I really can't remember.

But it certainly wasn't anything with such details.
