Razzi and Casper

From the New York Times last week I fell upon these really interesting drawings made by young school children in Staten Island. Back in November, 2012, a pony and a young zebra escaped from their owner's home and cavorted through the quiet streets of Staten Island. These were done in response to the event. 
I find them fresh and original; revealing 'Beginner Mind' which many artists try to seek as adults later in life. Only a fortunate few manage to hang on to it through childhood and adolescence, for it seems to peel off us like bark from a tree as we become developed 'conceptualizers' and 'experts'.
