Innocence in Illustration - Have you lost your innocence?

Have you lost your innocence in illustration? Remember how you drew as a child? Especially when you were emotionally affected by something? Did you ever put a caption with your drawings?

I just loved these paintings done by Japanese children affected by the 2011 tsunami. They are real and personal paintings and on exhibit at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Florida.

This is by Niziho Takahashi, Grade 5, who said "I drew my wish that in 10 years, the earth and the grass will be healthy enough to walk my dog."

Created by Nanami Ogata, Grade 4, who said: "This is a picture of people holding hands so that no matter how hard or painful things get, we can find the strength we need as long as we stay connected. It's a picture showing the whole world coming together as one, and that the people are going to overcome hurt and hardships and be happy. It was hard to draw the hands holding each other."

I would love if you shared your innocent, early drawings on my blog. You should always enjoy applying innocence in your work. Sometimes innocence is what we need to affect the viewer in our paintings.
