Dad turns his son’s drawings into reality

This dad uses Photoshop to turn his six-year-old son’s drawings into reality, and the results are both weird and wonderful
giraffe drawing

 

Dom is six years old and he loves to draw – everything from family members to bikes, but mostly animals. He even has his very own Instagram account where he shares all of his wonderful drawings. But it’s not Dom’s artistic skills that got the Internet buzzing.

While some parents simply stick their kids’ drawings on the fridge, Tom Curtis decided to use a little Photoshop magic to transform his son’s drawings into real-life photographs. Together they have created a weird but wonderful alternative world filled with people and things that are mostly adorable, but sometimes a little creepy too.

Creepy or not, we think it’s a super-sweet idea. Here are some of our favourite pics from their Instagram account, @thingsihavedrawn:

 

What Dom drew:

thingsihavedrawnOf all the creatures I’ve shown you before, the elephant is definitely my favourite to draw.

What he saw:

thingsihavedrawnIf you’ve not seen my drawing, you should certainly look, and compare with the elephant in this photo dad took.

What Dom drew:

thingsihavedrawnA zebra’s a bit like a black and white horse. Here’s one (with something that’s missing of course).

What he saw:

thingsihavedrawn: White stripes on black, or black stripes on white? Here is a photo to see which is right.

What Dom drew:

thingsihavedrawnFor Christmas I’m getting a new pedal bike. I’m not supposed to know, but here’s what it’s like.

What he saw:

thingsihavedrawn: Dad left it outside propped up by the shed. I’ve drawn it in blue, but it’s actually red.

What Dom drew:

thingsihavedrawn: We bought a new car – it’s parked out the front. The old one was damaged when Dad had a shunt.

What he saw:

thingsihavedrawn: Mum is suspicious – I know how she feels, because Dad seems quite pleased with his new set of wheels.

What Dom drew:

thingsihavedrawn: I’ll start with a picture I’ve drawn of my cat. You might be surprised but she does look like that.

What he saw:

thingsihavedrawn: Just look at this photo Mum’s taken of her; she’s just like a sausage all covered in fur.

What Dom drew:

thingsihavedrawn: Here’s a drawing I’ve done of my Dad. I’ve drawn him just right so I hope he’s not sad.

What he saw:

thingsihavedrawn: Dad sometimes tries to grow a beard. It’s mainly just bumfluff so looks a bit weird.
