It seems talent runs in the family.
Daniel Julez J. Smith, the six-year-old son of singer Solange Knowles (and nephew of artists Beyonce and Jay-Z) has designed a shirt to raise money for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
According to a website set up by the elder Knowles for the project, "'Julez for Japan' is a watercolor designed t-shirt, inspired by the recent tragic earthquake and Tsunami in Japan."
"My 6-year-old son, Daniel Julez J. Smith, was highly affected by the devastating footage he witnessed of the catastrophe," Knowles writes on the site. "After a series of questions and conversations, he decided he wanted to contribute in some way."
The singer insists her youngster imagined the design himself and even includes a photo of the artist at work. The design was created using a scan of Julez's watercolor interpretation of the Japanese flag.
