See the Difference Between an Artist's Drawings From Age Two to Now

By Casey Chan on at

This is great. Artist Jake Lockett reveals his progression as an artist from a wee two-year-old to now at 24 years young in a fantastic collection of his own work. You can see the simple drawings he made at two and three to the addition of colour and imagination a few years later to more sophisticated work around 10 and then finally developing his own style in the more recent years. Artists aren't all born brilliant.

Visual News spotted the gallery and it's pretty nice to be able to see how much growth he's made as an artist and as a person. They're drawings that reveal a bit of his thought process and where his mind was at that age. Like a journal of his formative years, only infinitely more beautiful and a little less embarrassing.
