Student Spotlight

A Chat With 
Kenneth Mejia

Kenneth is a member of Ms. Simmonds' 5th grade class and just graduated this week, so technically he's a 6th grader.  Congratulations Ken.  We decided to have a chat before he moves on about his artwork.  Ken is always drawing.  He has a unique style and a real love for seeing his ideas come to life on the page.  

Bushick106: So Ken, when did you start drawing? 

KM: I started when I was 4 years old. 

Bushwick 106: Everything we've seen of yours has a cool style.  What inspires the pictures you draw? 

KM: The cartoons I watch at home, like "Ninja Turtles". 

Bushwick 106: Do you always use pencils for your art? 


Bushwick 106: Do you have any favorite artists? 

KM: Leonardo DaVinci & Michelangelo

Bushwick 106: Some of the pictures you've shown us have a comic feel.  Do you read comics? 

KM: Yes, I do. 

Bushwick 106: What do you want to tell the people? Anyone you want to give a shout out to? 

KM: Watch out for me.  I'll be coming out with new comic books and drawings real soon;)
