5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.

John Green Novels | Animated Titles (more here)

I posted the LFA one earlier as a random animation practice and some of you seem to really enjoy it.. so I figured it’ll be fun to go and do the rest. I specifically had a hard time doing the TFiOS one because there are so many things I want to include (infinity sign, lungs and wine to name a few). After so many failed attempts, I ended up going for the swing set thing and I hope that does it.

You might remember this one from the three designs I did for Harper Teen last year, all of them based on quotes by the awesome T.
