artist dad turns son's doodles into absurdly anatomically-incorrect animals

back in 2016, artist and dad of a child named ‘dom’ first created an instagram account that chronicled his son’s quirky drawings, paired with ‘lifelike’ versions hilariously recreated in photoshop. as part of the ongoing project ‘things I have drawn’, childlike illustrations of animals, cars, people and plants are paired with professionally-rendered ‘real’ renditions in all of their anatomically-incorrect glory.

since then, ‘things I have drawn’ has evolved to see dom — and now al’s — innocent doodles of elephants, sharks, cats, and cars turned into realistically-rendered creatures that are wildly out-of-proportion and strangely shaped. a portrait by young dom of his own father has been morphed into a hilariously monstrous man, with drooping eyes, a skewed nose and a creepily curved smile. simple silhouettes of both sea and wildlife yield absurdly amusing ‘animals’ shaped liked circles and squares; curiously-constructed cars are created without consideration to drivability; and butterflies bear simple smiley-faces and strangely-scaled wings. the family have even released a book, which catalogs the hilarious and sometimes terrifying illustrations. see a selection of drawings, old and new, below.
