The story drawings of urban Japanese children were compared to those of Egyptian village children. The two groups were shown to compose their drawings differently on 14 of 15 measures of pictorial composition, to use narrative structures differently on 9 of 10 measures, and to employ themes differently on 12 of 13 measures. The Japanese children’s graphic narratives are seen as over-approximations of the “actual” world in which they live, and the Egyptian children’s drawings are seen as underapproximations.
