How did you make this work:
This work stems from a call to make posters on the theme of the future of education. First I was tempted to represent new technologies, but then I decided to tell something about myself. I drew a child who is not understood and isolated. That child believed for a long time that he was wrong, and only through good teaching did he discover that he had a talent, which today he has turned into work.
