Model Plane, Mitsubishi Zero, 1989, first grade

crayon on wood  2 x 6.5 x 6.5 inches

 

This model airplane was originally intended to fly, and it did not.  My dad wrote on the underside: “Adam’s first project, no help, age 6, summer 1989.”

 

Hughes H-4 Hercules, 1990, first grade

pencil and crayon on reused paper 8.5 x 21 inches

 

Hughes’ Hercules was too large, even as a drawing, for one sheet of paper.  It required two sheets, taken from the recycle bin and glued together.

 

B-25 Mitchell, 1988, kindergarten

pencil and watercolor on paper 8 x 10.5 inches

 

This is one of my earliest observational drawings which I drew from a plastic model.  Notice the cast shadow under the plane.
