We parents have to go through an awful parental edition of Pictionary. You know, that high-stress guessing game that begins when your kid hands you a drawing they drawed just for you?
“A chair! A cat? Um, a tractor? Is it a camel? Uhhhhh… a clown???”
You either guess it right or get sternly corrected and then try to smother your shame by hugging and thanking them. Later you may say to yourself, “In my defense, THAT did NOT look like a seagull!”
But what if it did? Well, this amazing dad, Tom Curtis, answers just that question with his @thingsihavedrawn Instagram and takes his 6-year-old son’s drawings and Photoshops them into reality-ish.
Psssst. It’s a seahorse!
Pssssst. It’s a goat. I think?
I’m a father and graphic designer so these are especially amazing for me to see. I can see, as I’m sure you can, that these aren’t just great internet fun, they’re a truly special experience between a father and his son.
