Then and Now by JayFosgitt Then and Now by JayFosgitt
The drawing on the left was done in 1977 when I was two years old, on the inside cover of a paperback "Little Golden Book". I thought it would be neat to draw the same character with the skills I have today. After all, how often do you get the chance to draw with your childhood self?

That's actually quite good for a two year old.

there is a Before/After meme group called "Draw It Again" out here on DA. This is great. I wish I still had some of my old sketches from when I was a kid to improve on.

I see you've progressed slightly over the years. [/massiveunderstatement]

Pretty good work as a two-year-old. I'd have trouble doing that well now, and I've got two decades on ya!

I love looking through my childhood doodles and updating them. Granted I'm in my 20's and the work I see is from my kid to teen years, but its still fun.

Wow -- you had the drawing chops even as a toddler!
I didn't draw as well at age 37 as you did at 2, I don't think.
