Jeder der auch nur ansatzweise etwas mit Kindern zu tun hat, kennt das. Ab und an bekommt man eine wunderbar kreative Zeichnung der Kids zugesteckt mit dem Hinweis, dass das ein Bagger/ein Drache/eine Prinzessin oder sonst etwas sein soll. Meistens jedoch erkennt man nichts darauf, da die Zeichenskills der jungen Menschen noch nicht richtig vorhanden sind.
Genau diesen Zeichnungen widmet sich der Instagram Account des Tages. Unter dem Feed @thingsihavedrawn sammelt der Familienvater Tom Curtis diverse Kinderzeichnungen, die er mit Hilfe von Bildbearbeitungsprogrammen zum Leben erweckt hat. Was daraus entsteht ist absolut skuril. Aber auch ziemlich lustig und in manchen Fällen aber auch echt gruselig.
Hier unten präsentieren wir euch einige Highlights des Instagram Accounts:
In our Instagram Story, we gave you a choice: And by just one vote – you voted Tortoise! ___ It’s true everyone. Quite remarkable that it really couldn’t have been any closer. Thanks to everyone who voted. And thanks to Lucille for her brilliant drawings. What shall we draw next I wonder? ___ #thingsihavedrawn #tortoise #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #idrawwhatisaw
It's a car from the future – driven by Dad. (But just so you know – this is an #ad.) ___ Hi everyone. Tom, the boys’ dad, here. Things I Have Drawn isn’t my day job – it’s a fun thing Dom, Al and I do together when they’re not at school and I’m not at work. And for anyone who’s been following us for a while (thank you) you’ll know that we’ve been lucky enough to even have a book published (link in our bio). Over the past 2 and a bit years, we’ve let our following grow organically by posting pictures we want to create, but when a brand like Mastercard comes knocking, asking us to do something with them that we love doing anyway, it feels like a bit of a no-brainer! This week is the Goodwood Festival of Speed – a big car show in the south of England – and Mastercard UK, as its main sponsor, has run a competition asking parents to send in their kids’ designs for the ‘car of the future’. It’s been an absolute pleasure helping bring some of those drawings to life with a bit of Things I Have Drawn magic. Over the next few posts you’ll see some of the pictures we’ve created together. First up – here’s Eduard Arion’s awesome drawing, turned into a true speed machine. (And sure enough – that really is me at the wheel.) Another one to follow tomorrow. ___ And here are some hashtags: #FOS #Goodwood #StartSomethingPriceless @mastercarduk #mastercard #thingsihavedrawn #cardrawing #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #idrawwhatisaw
A glimpse of Her Majesty, in lovely lime green. ___ Hi everyone. Tom here, the boys’ dad. I would have posted this royal wedding pic yesterday, but instead went on a 330 mile round trip to watch it with my 101 year old nan (the boys’ great grandmother) which was much more important! Hope you enjoyed it if you also watched it. Do you think the Queen did? (We love her really, don’t we boys.) ___ #thingsihavedrawn #herroyalmajesty #queen #royalwedding #royalwedding2018
Hi everyone. Tom here, Dom and Al’s dad. Who says unicorns have to be horse-shaped? This magical unicorn giraffe is the wonderful creation of Benjamin, age 6. And look – it’s even got wings, eyes (and an ear) on stalks, and two rather brilliant monkey tails. ___ @wnfnederland @wwf #thingsihavedrawn #unicorngiraffe #unicorn #giraffe #ps_warmtones
Hi everyone. Tom here, the boys’ dad. I sometimes get comments and DMs asking what I’ll do when Dom and Al are simply too good at drawing, and I always say that there are loads of brilliant artists out there for us to work with. And not just kids! We love @rubyetc_ so here’s one of her dogs. ___ If you’ve got an animal drawing you want to see made ‘real’ hashtag it #thingsihavedrawnatthezoo, or just tell us what you’d like to see in a future post in the comments below! #thingsihavedrawn @rubyetc_ #dog #huskydog #husky
Hi everyone. Dom and Al's dad here. Some of you might be wondering where we've been these past few weeks. Well – we've actually been really busy and over the next week or so we'll have some pretty exciting news to share. In the meantime it's an absolute pleasure to be posting our lastest image from Panda Magazine for @wnfnederland This amazing elephant was drawn by the very talented Olivia van der Putten who is just 3 years old. Today Olivia is the 'I' in #thingsihavedrawn Back with more soon! #wwf #elephant #kidsdrawing #ps_movement
