Childhood is pretty traumatic, not matter how good it is. It amazes me how afraid people are to make kid’s entertainment “scary”. Kids don’t need much help; they wrote the book on scary!
I dug up some drawings I did when I was about 5 or 6 years old, and a few captured some horrible stuff. Thanks go out to my mother who saved these drawings from when I was a child.
Other kids drawings can be found here.
Ghosty, 1983, graphite on paper.
Fight, 1983, marker on post-it note
If you don’t have an older sibling, this pretty much sums it up
Pop, 1983, graphite on paper.
