Sometimes when we see amazing art it’s easy to just think “oh that person must be really gifted” but this progression gives hope that maybe anybody can create beautiful art if they are willing to put in the effort. Jake Lockett has been making art since he could pick up a pen at age 2 and shared with us a progression album on his website showcasing a couple pieces of art from almost every year from age 2 to his current 24 years of age. Each year his art grows a little more technical and then diverges into his unique style. It’s really awesome to see this artist’s journey laid out in picture form and would be interesting to see the childhood works from other highly regarded artists too.[see_also]
Although all of these pieces are more advanced than I was at each age; the highest technical skill level I’ve reached is Marc’s at age 6. But it gives me hope that if I pursue it, there’s a chance I might be able to catch up to his work at age 12. Check out this talented, young UK-based artist’s work on his website and stay tuned to his blog, Facebook, and Twitter to see where his illustrations will progress into his late 20’s, 30’s and beyond.
Update (May 1, 2014): See the creation of Jake’s latest work, from start to finish, here.
