Meet Joey. His mom is Julie, the supermom who shares her chaotic journey through autism on her community Facebook site at Ketchup with a side of autism. Joey is the supportive big brother to his sister Debbie. And at only 12 years old, Joey is quite the creative guy! And boy, do we love creative types here at Geek Club Books, so we decided to find out more about Joey and present a gallery showing of his art.
Joey, how long have you been drawing and making videos?
I’ve been drawing since I was about 4 years old. It’s hard to remember when I started drawing because I have always loved to draw. I started making videos in 2006. I was 6 years old and I started by uploading and editing videos from MAD TV.
Where do you get your ideas?
I get ideas from looking at other cartoons or looking at the world around me like when I see other kids acting crazy.
What’s your favorite thing about making art?
My favorite thing about creating something is that I can create what I want to create. I really like to use my imagination!
How does it make you feel when you’ve created something?
I feel proud of myself when I create because I have accomplished something.
What does your logo D4E mean?
What would you say to other kids (and adults) about being creative?
I would tell other people to use their imagination, think of something they like, and have fun making their creation!
Thank’s Joey. Keep being Creative4ever! And now to our gallery opening featuring a collection of original D4E artwork by Joey:
