“My inspiration for ‘Magical Moment’ came from a mixture of a movies and stories about mice stealing things and games. Since I love animals such as hamsters, mice, and dogs, I created a mouse using a unique way to get his food.” Alex explained, “My art teacher, Mrs. Shijun, has taught me a lot about art and drawing.”art-num-295887310
