It’s a well-known fact that all 5-year-olds are gifted artists.  Just ask any parent.  As evidence I present the following exhibits.

This is a picture of my youngest son from his T-ball days.  It was taken about four years ago, before he decided to retire from baseball.

Around that same time he was diligently honing his artistic abilities.  Below is a copy of one of his most beloved works from that period, based on the above photo and entitled, simply, “Self-Portrait in Pencil on a Large Yellow Sticky-Note” (perhaps you’ve heard of it).

Although the drawing is somewhat abstract, you can still see the artist’s meticulous attention to detail in the carefully replicated assymetrical arrangement of the t-shirt collar.  It’s a well-known fact that all 5-year-olds are gifted artists.  Just ask any parent.
