The Drawing Journal of a Kid Through Time
By Bryan Sancho
After being featured in the Youth Art Expo in his county, Bryan Sancho set out to develop a book of his favorite designs, created with the raster graphic editor program MS Paint. A recent graduate of high school, Sancho spent most of his adolescent years creating designs in Microsoft Paint with little association with hand-drawn art. Many graphic artists would cringe at creating designs in a raster program, if a vector program was readily available. Sancho preferred the challenge of Paint, using his fondness of color, video games, and natural curiosity to create staples in time with art. See the designs he rendered from ages 10 to 15. Sancho is a recent graduate of K12 International Private Academy where he received a 4-year scholarship and earned his diploma as a National Honor Society student and Computer Programming completer.
Sancho Education Group features the work of the LSN KIDS Youth-Build-A-Book Project in the development and publishing of “Corporal Freddie Stowers, An American Hero: A Children’s Story.” This book was created by K-college aged students for K-6th graders. Due to be released in the fall of 2023.
