My favorite new artist

I've love to share with you the truly awesome artwork of Damon Z. A. or "L'il D". He's a classmate of my son's and his artwork, specifically these robots that he creates, have knocked my socks off, to put it lightly. All of these guys have a story with functional pieces to them. The detail goes on for miles and is truly astounding. I cannot wrap my brain around the fact that this has all come from a 6-year old, and have begged his Mom to keep fed with each and every piece of brilliance (really) that he dishes out.

Knock em' dead L'il D.
