The Subtext Gallery Homeroom exhibit is extremely nostalgic. It revolves around old childhood drawings that have been re-imagined by their creators who have actually pursued art as a career. Like night and day, the interpretations not only show how their talent has blossomed, but also how mature they have become throughout the years. Although both of those elements are pretty much expected, to see it displayed in such a way is enlightening.

Curated by Christina Conway, the Subtext Gallery Homeroom exhibit is a must-see for San Diego residents and visitors. As Dylan Jones, partner at Subtext Gallery, notes, "it offers a rare glimpse into the childhood of some of our favorite artists.”

Not only is it a fantastical concept, it also demonstrates clearly how practice and passion can affect one’s hobby.
