Homeless Man

Lucas, Age 9

  • Drawing
  • Graphite pencils and blending stumps on stone colour board
  • A2 portrait

I made this drawing purely thinking about the emotions homeless people must go through living on the streets by themselves. I've seen homeless people in my town. This man is looking back, a bit suspicious of his surroundings.

Lucas's Teacher: "Lucas is beginning to look beyond the image in his work. He is thinking about the characters that he portrays and the emotions that they evoke. This empathy shines through in his work."
