In 2011 I wrote about a vacation with a five-year-old, how he was curious about my daily art project for that year and decided to adopt it for his own during our week at the beach. Earlier this month I had the pleasure of spending time with him again -- now he's nine -- and again he was curious about my daily art project. After watching me do my collage he wanted to do his own.
We both worked on the same "assignment" -- make a face by putting together parts from other images. I was impressed that he was literally thinking outside the box, allowing the hair and beard to extend off the page.
