When you’re a kid and have a wild imagination, drawing is always an exciting outlet for your creativity. Although you may not be that artistically-gifted yet at your age, you don’t allow your skills (or lack of it) to stop you from picking up a pencil and then doodling like crazy. It’s fun after all!
Take it from 6-year-old Dom who enjoys drawing and then uploads his artworks online via Instagram. What makes his stuff really special though is how his supportive father recreates his images into realistic, funny versions.
As the photos below show us, Dom truly has a wonderful imagination and a pretty awesome dad.
Browse on and see for yourself:
#1. A cute bunny with tiny arms.
#2. The other elephant be like “I’m getting outta here, this dude’s creeping me out!”
#3. Finding Nemo with a dash of Annoying Orange?
#4. The stuff of nightmares!
#5. A giraffe that looks really, really – for lack of a better term – wrong.
#6. A butterfly with a pair of funky wings.
#7. Love that car!
#8. A laughing lion.
#9. Cool bike!
#10. Smiling sheep.
#11. Happy Halloween, perhaps?
#12. All aboard!
#13. In case you still haven’t noticed, Dom truly loves drawing smiling animals.
#14. Like we were saying…
#15. A badass-looking owl.
#16. Looks like a little snowmonster or something!
#17. This one’s a seahorse, I’m guessing.
#18. Another smiling animal – this time even underwater.
#19. The crab probably knows they’re cooking him next!
#20. “Houston, we’ve got a problem!”
Seriously, I can’t imagine the amount of hours Dom’s father spent recreating these drawings. I mean that takes some real skills, man! I love the attention to detail and how the right textures were added to make the child’s illustrations come to life.

East Meets West: Cultural Differences Shown Through Infographics
Have you ever thought how different Western and Asian cultures can be? Aside from language, food and clothing, what else is odd? Apparently there are a lot - from the way we think about our bosses, to the noise level at restaurants. All these subtle nuances are perfectly captured by 26-year old Chinese artist Yang Liu.
Yang Liu spent half of her life in China and half in Germany. She was 13 years old when her family moved to Europe. That's when she began appreciating the differences between her homeland China and her new home country. She uses minimalist infographics which are actually like a meme, to depict the differences. See if you agree with her observations. We compiled some pictures from her work.

A Peek into the Bedrooms of Millennials from All Over the World
