Because childhood drawings rule

Know what else rules? Drawings from your childhood! In this case, a sampling from one of my co-workers, Paul Z, age 8. How rad is "Picasso"?! You come up w/ these kinds of designs when your're an adult! And yes those ARE character stats thank you. As you can see, strength is through the roof!
He's got a whole book of these, including another one of my favorites; A character that is......half lion, half tank. Half freakin' tank son! I love that free-thinking, anything goes, throw-logic-out-the-window, "makes sense to me!" mentality we have when we we're kids. How cool would it be to make a feature and let kids art direct the whole thing?!

HAW!! Too funny! Kids are brilliant... something awful happens to their genius when they go to school though. I know, my wife's a teacher and all, but somewhere along the way kids start censoring themselves so's not to seem too weird. I blame other people's kids.

Haha! So true Raf. Not to get to heady,but there's a great Picasso quote that goes something like

“It took me four years to paint like the old masters, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

Ooh! and this one is verbatim:

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

Then again Picasso did drink absinthe and smoke alot of opium.

Ha, thats awesome man!! Yea, kids have such a great "I'm not trying to impress anyone" mentality. They just create to create. The true core of how we should really work. Great stuff my friend.
