These kid-hood versions of famous pop culture heroes and villains revel in showing their potential. We all know what that future will be, but the delight comes in seeing it spring into their imagination for possibly the first time. That quarter spent becomes a ride that lasts a lifetime.
Patrick Ballesteros, a Los Angeles based freelance illustrator/concept artist for the film, game, and animation industries with a passion for art that brings back child memories is responsible for these little gems. You can see more of Ballesteros work at http://patrickballesteros.com/.
