A little drawing told me...

I was cleaning one of my messy closets the other day and I found drawings that some of my former students had made of me, about a year and a half ago. They really made me laugh again and reminded me of the great moments I had spent with them: Yuya and Mizuho, Jung-Su, and all the others...

It's funny about drawings. How do you think people see you? 

Wouldn't it be fun to ask your closest friend, or your colleague, or neighbor to draw your portrait, just to see how they would portray you?

Drawing #1 by Yuya, 32 years-old, drawing #2 by Jung-Su, 13 years-old.

And what about the drawings that our children make of us? What do you think when they portray you without a mouth, or ears, or arms? And how does it make you feel when you have no smile on the drawing, or on the contrary a super big one? Drawings always say something and I just love to look at them.

Hello Anabelle, thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a lovely message. I'm about to have a look through your previous posts! As for drawings your children do of you, one of my twin girls Nico did a portrait of me the other day. It consisted of a sick man with about 10eyes all over the body! I'm not sure I want to know the meaning behind that!!! I'm hoping its just that I see all, she is only two so i'll forgive her!

Hope you are having a lovely dayX

@Dilly: wow, a sick man with 10 eyes, that's major!!! I love kids' perception! But you're right, it probably says that you can see everything :)
@Sarah: thanks for the answer! i'll wait till my pockets are full again and maybe the lamp will still be available...
