Dragon Art

Kai Dong's Dragon Flying in the Mountains

“Dragon Flying in the Mountains” by Kai D, 10 years old

Kai loves dragons, elephants and  cheetahs; geography, playing violin and riding his bike. He says, “I like to build with LEGOS because they are fun and easy to take apart.” This creative and enterprising  young talent is also writing a book entitled, “Claws of the Sky”.


Christmas Morning

I watch our son create

Young boy smart and free

in his imagination

I am like him

a child dreaming

full of wonder





Christmas Morning, Lewis Mansel, 1885

I pray his dreams come true

The world often is not



wild ideas and yet





We are forever inspired by our children. 


My pet is a dog. His name is Toby.

 He likes to play and he is really friendly. He gets really excited when new people come to our house and he jumps on them a lot and sometimes, people get scared of him a lot.

Sophia Liy

This adorable piece was written and illustrated by Sophia L. at age 6. The imaginations never cease to amaze us. There is just so much going on in those little heads!
At the time, Sophia was a Brownie. Her troop was a member of the GirlScouts of Southeast Florida. We thank Sophia’s mom, Melanie, for allowing us to share this piece.

Do you have child that loves to write and draw? Send them our way. We’ll do what we can to help promote and encourage them…


Ramblings of the Mind

Raquel Drawing

YA Fantasy Art

Raquel is a 2nd year college student who is a whiz at math and loves art, music, nature and animals. She is also a huge fan of stand-up comedy and Sherlock Holmes. We love the whimsy that Raquel brings to this illustration, pushing the boundaries and stepping outside the comfort zone. We are so glad we searched our archives to find this.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” – Dr. Seuss
