Childhood Drawings : Age 4 or 5

I just came back from visiting my family in Belarus and brought my childhood drawings with me. The only drawings that didn't vanish are the ones that I did when I was 4 or 5 years old. Interesting subject matter I would say, probably the normal drawings of a Soviet child. Too bad I don't have my drawings from my school years. It would be interesting to see what I was up to at that time.


  1. Katia! Hope you had a great time in Belarus.
    Thank you for sharing these, they're WONDERFUL. It's really interesting seeing pieces of yours when you were only 5!

  2. Thanks Sarah!
    Some of the drawings are very funny.
    I wonder if I was asked to depict those scenes or I just came up with the themes myself???

  3. Very interesting. They definitely have a European children's feel to them. Nice harbinger of things to come...

  4. These are so sweet! great use of color at such a young age.

  5. Congratulations on the Tomie Award. I love your vertical layout, not an easy way to show the breadth of the landscape, but you did it very well, and really captured the scope of their journey.
