Artist Transforms His Childhood Doodles Into Mesmerizing Grown-Up Masterpieces

Even the most imaginative of adult artists can't compete with some of the effortless and strangely brilliant doodles of a child. Admit it, no matter how many art classes you take, it's hard to capture the wild imagination and unbridled confidence that come so easily with youth.
