This is my nephew. When he was 2 years old I was holding him in my lap at a restaurant and had an impression that he was autistic. I have autistic sons, and have developed a 6th sense about these things. His mother struggled with this announcement, but, they were able to start early intervention. Autistic people are extremely intelligent, awkward and a pleasure to be around, most of the time. Most pictures of this little boy are of him clowning. This photo was taken when he was not aware.

I decided that since people on the spectrum see and feel things differently, that his portrait needed to be bright! The puzzle pieces in the background also hint autism.

That is lovely, it captures his personality. My Grandson is on the spectrum and he amazes me everyday.

Beautiful drawing! He looks as if he's going to jump off the page he's so realistic.
