Marquest Williams exceeded my expectations. The young man poured out his binder full of drawings and sketches, making it apparent that he’s been at this kind of thing for a while. His drawings cause memories to come back to the forefront of my mind, times I did my own drawing at home, school and anywhere else I actually sat still.
At age 12 he has skillfully and creatively drawn and colored images from his favorite shows like “Dragonball Z” and characters like “Sonic the Hedgehog,” “Naruto,” “Phineas and Ferb” and “Mickey Mouse.” He also paints from time to time!
With no tracing involved, he simply takes in an image from the internet on TV and goes to work on any piece of paper he can find. Marquest said that it usually takes him 30 minutes to an hour to draw each of his pictures.
Accompanying Marquest was his mother, Veronica Sanders, father Jermaine Sanders, and two younger brother Lamont and Jermaine.
Veronica hopes to start her own business as an architect and in turn have Marquest share his work with clients. Either way, she knows her son Marquest will be quite successfull considering his talent and abilities.

Marquest’s favorite shows right now are “Regular Show,” “Spongebob,”"Beyblade,” and obviously, “Dragonball Z.”
When he grows up he wants to be a football player.
