I just received this in the mail today:
I trust I will be forgiven for any copyright violations by scanning this postcard...you see, Zac is my nephew. From a very early age, even when he was still mostly non-verbal his artistic gift was evident. For a long time he would only draw on a white board, but with patient guidance from his teacher he moved to paper in the form of spiral bound blank pages. The first time my sister-in-law showed me his drawings I was blown away. He understood perspective and scale without ever having been taught it at an age where stick figures would have been the expected norm for any child. In particular I remember a series of drawings, each of the same scene, but as you turned the page in his book each scene would be as if you had walked further and further into the drawing. It was amazing.
I am glad he has been able to continue developing his artistic abilities. I think they far outweigh any autistic limitations. How cool that his work was chosen for the postcard for World Autism Awareness Day!
I am so proud of him.
