Meet our Magnificent Makers
Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.
By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.
We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.Do you make things?

Hello! I'm an animator based in Toronto, Ontario and I specialize in digital frame-by-frame animation. I work digitally so a majority of my works use dark lines and are coloured in a vector style, but sometimes I like to merge the flat look of digital art and the tactile nature of physical art into one piece.
I also do 3D animation once in a while and I mostly create 3D models.
Joseph Caiado is a 3rd Year student at the Ontario College of Art and Design University studying digital painting and animation. Throughout his time at OCAD U, Joseph has learned how to take a conceptual idea and create it using various methods of artistic practice and as such has a wide range of skills. Open to new experiences, he is excited to be able to create work that brings ideas of our brilliant youth to life.

Visual arts has always been a strong part of how I connect to the world. The creativity of young minds is my driving inspiration. I enjoy re-contextualizing children's artwork through in-depth collaboration with my craft work. Mixed media elements allow me to fully describe the emotion of a piece and reiterate unconventional characteristics of children's designs.
