Story and artwork from Henry Ikiseh
Right from my childhood, I have always loved the art, but not with a vision to be an artist due to pressure from my dad who wanted me to be an engineer. I was forced to explore the sciences. But all of my quest in the sciences could not hold me back from my passion. In desperation, I sort various artists who could teach me how to draw. I paid a little stipend in return, even though I had no money to pay, I would save up some money from my daily pocket money to pay for their services. Their charges were too expensive for me, so, I stopped and began to practice drawing on my own.
Story and artwork from Sarah Salinas
I’m a college freshman currently majoring in animation. Art has always been a part of my life every since the second grade where I’d have 3 composition books filled with comics, inspired by the “asdfmovies” by TomSka. Even now I see art in everything and how Nature has made such a beautiful work of art in life.
Story and artwork from Grace Garner
Hello, I am Grace Garner, I’m 16 years old from Jefferson City, Missouri. My dad is a fine artist. When I was young I would watch him paint. He would let me draw on the backs of canvases, and this is when I first started drawing. I consider art my passion, just looking forward to drawing, looking at art, or anything art related inspires me! Art has helped me so much in life and is practically my own personal therapist. I am inspired by my mom, who sponsors why passion, my sister who enjoys art, my dad who is my personal art critiquer, and Walt Disney, who is my idol.
Story and artwork from Sandra Sepúlveda
Art is my life. When I was little, I spent my days sailing between paintings and when I was 9 years old, in front of a Picasso painting in Madrid, I said to myself “I want to be a painter”. I decided from then on that I wanted to dedicate my entire life to giving people the same feeling that art gives me.

The important thing for me to offer an experience to the senses
Hello, my name is Bruno, I’m from Mexico.
Many people I know take for granted that drawing and painting is a Hobby. When they enter my workspace they are surprised to observe the chaos of drawings and paintings everywhere until they reach the ceiling or my collection of materials, that is when they truly understand my passion for Art.
