1963? Pencil sketch, nondream, c. 7x9", by Chris Wayan.

This is one of my earliest surviving pictures. I was nine, I think.

Surreal pencil landscape by Chris Wayan, done age nine or so, as a homage to Yves Tanguy.

In case you're looking for a guy with a tan... Yves Tanguy was a sailor who taught himself how to paint, did eerie alien landscapes, and joined the Surrealists. I was exposed to him early: a science fiction publisher used Tanguy and Kay Sage paintings as paperback covers, and when I saw them, I immediately set out to master surrealism--well before age ten.
