Kids ARE relevant artists!!

More reason to never underestimate the value of kid's art. This logo of Mr. Peanut came from a 1916 contest. The winner was a 13 year old school boy named Antonio Gentile, and he took home $5 for his effort.

Almost 100 years later, and the logo still holds up. No changes have been made, except for the version of where Mr. Peanut puts his right hand on his hip, and leans to the left on his cane.

Way to go Antonio!!
