"I'm bunking school", he said one day.
"What classes are you missing today?", I asked.
"Art & Graphics mainly!"
"Art?" I said, "You love Art!"
"Frankly, Mum I get more Art done at home and I've got an assessment coming up."
"Why do you get more done at home?", I asked
"Because the teacher always asks me to help everyone else with their Art and I know Photoshop better than the teacher!"...
that was a few years ago...
Now he specialises in front-end web-design, logos, branding & graphics.
