All children go through a so-called “artist” phase. Families have their fair share of drawings on papers, cardboards, walls, refrigerators, and unfortunately, even blankets, sheets and clothes. Aya is also fond of drawing herself. Her scrawly drawings have steadily progressed from incomprehensible doodles to visibly recognizable characters.
Fortunately for us now, we can simply scan the drawings and preserve them in electronic form. I wish this had been available decades ago, when I was also going through my artist phase. Much to my dismay, my mom hated clutters in the house and promptly threw everything away. Wouldn’t it be fun to take a look at some of the stuff that I drew as a child? I bet anyone would be just as curious to see “artifacts” from their growing-up years. After all, we are children only once in our lives.
