A JBG Summer: An Artist’s Journey

My name is Mamadou, I am 12 years old, I go to Beverly Heights Middle School and I am an artist. My hobbies include drawing, reading and playing videos. My life as an artist started at the age of 5 and since then, I have evolved from drawing scribbles to drawing characters from my favourite shows, books and video games. I I started drawing because it was fun to me at first but now it is an important part of my life and my identity. One of the most memorable experiences I had with art was when I entered a Transformers drawing contest. Although I did not win the contest, it was a fun experience. I got to draw and create a new Transformer robot and it inspired by Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee. My favourite style of drawing is Anime and Manhwa. I first heard of Just BGraphic when they hosted a concert at my school as part of the Unplugged Fest Middle School Tour last year. I really enjoyed the concert and through the concert I found out about the summer camp. I really enjoy coming to JBG’s summer camp and this is my second year at the camp. My favourite activities to do at camp are swimming and doing arts and crafts.
