Their Instagram page “Things I Have Drawn” is quickly becoming viral!
A little boy from the United Kingdom, Dom, and his younger brother, Al, enjoy drawing together, and they often take inspiration from the things they see in their surroundings. Their father then does the coolest thing with the final results! He takes their adorable drawings, then photoshops them into real photos, bringing their drawings to life.
The “Things I Have Drawn” Instagram account has garnered around 90,000 followers and counting! Fans enjoy seeing new pictures of the creations the two boys and their father think up.
Their massive success has left the family feeling overwhelmed, as the boys’ dad said in a post, “We could never have predicted that our little project could have gained so much attention over such a short space of time. I just wanted to thank everyone so much for all the brilliant comments and support.”
I especially love how each post has a little quote or rhyming poem underneath that pertains to the drawing. Just adorable! Sometimes when I’m sitting around bored, I try to guess what each drawing is about!
This first photo is of the Shard, a building Al drew whilst in London.
“Al loves tall buildings, but one thing is clear, We live in a village — there are no skyscrapers here,Surely us finding a tower’s not hard, So we went down to London, Oh look — there’s the Shard!”
The Shard is the fourth tallest building in all of Europe. It used to be called the London Bridge Tower.
“Here’s the real Shard stretching up to the sky, Dad says he thinks it’s 95 storeys high, It’s all made of glass — just look at those windows, Al’s good but he couldn’t have drawn all of those.”
Al’s take on a frog.
“It’s Alistair’s turn, so here is his frog, Or is it a green and yellowy dog? Perhaps it’s a lizard with a really small head, Enough guessing — let’s wait for the photo instead…”
Here is the dad’s unbelievably cute recreation.
“Al says he found this by the side of the road, It isn’t a frog — he thinks it’s a toad, But frogs are all slimy and toad skin is rough, (If I tell Al he’s wrong, he’ll get in a huff).”
Try to guess what this one is!
“Is this a drawing of a creature I’ve seen? Or maybe a monster for Halloween? Whatever the case, you’ll quite soon find out, When you see my next post — there won’t be any doubt…”
It was actually Dom’s version of a scary bear! (This one will give us nightmares)
“So here is my creature from a scary nightmare, Oh hang on a minute — it’s only a bear.”
This horse/dog/camel hybrid!
“I don’t often repeat my drawing projects, But wait till you see what photo comes next, (I’ve colored around it in a greeny-type blue. All because I want to give you a clue).”
….but it’s actually a sea horse!
“A pretty good likeness, I’m sure you’ll agree, A seahorse I found in a book of the sea.”
This awesome rocket ship.
“My brother Al wants to travel in space, So [he] keeps drawing rockets all over the place.”
Here’s proof of how authentic the drawing was!
“Here is the real one, flying up through the stars, It’s just left planet Earth — now onto Mars.”
This smiling bird.
“From seeing this drawing you’ll obviously know, That this is a picture of a pink flamingo.”
Not bad at all!
“My drawing is more real than many might think, Here is a photo — isn’t he pink!?”
A grumpy guy indeed.
“I could have done research and copied instead, But decided to draw this off the top of my head.”
This storm trooper fits right in!
“His helmet’s a bit different, but is still white and black, (I was drawing the one you can see at the back).”
“We went on a ferry — you can see it just here.”
Just an adorable recreation. It’s almost like a cartoon!
“It had hundreds of windows as you can see, Well, actually it had about 23.”
Many of the boys’ drawings feature a smile.
“Here’s a drawing (I’ve since thrown in the bin), It’s clearly a shark, but just look at that fin!”
What a friendly shark!
“Is it a Reef Shark or perhaps a Great White? One thing’s for sure, I drew it just right.”
Here’s another one of our favorites.
“Of all the creatures I’ve shown you before, The elephant is definitely my favorite to draw.”
This dad is truly wonderful. He has created a brand new bonding experience for him and his sons. Well done!
“If you’ve not seen my drawing, you should certainly look, And compare with the elephant in this photo Dad took.”
Just a quick hug please!
“Time for another — and a bit of a quiz, Here’s my friend’s pet — can you tell what it is?”
Turns out to be a cuddly bunny!
“It’s a rabbit of course, although his ears aren’t that long, If I’d drawn them longer, it would have been wrong.”
Now what could this be…
“After drawing my lemur, I went back to the zoo, Can you tell which animal I then went and drew?”
Clearly the other giraffes could tell the difference!
“I know you might think that I’m having a laugh, Well I’m not because this is an actual giraffe.”
“The city aquarium — that’s where to go, To draw a real clownfish a bit like Nemo.”
This fish is a bit terrifying!
“It’s sometimes too dark to see what lies beneath, But I drew him just right, except for his teeth.”
No dad would be anything other than ecstatic with this picture!
“Here’s a drawing I’ve done of my dad, I’ve drawn him just right so I hope he’s not sad.”
This is just about as much as we’re going to see of him, as the family keeps their identities hidden. They’re probably better off that way, as I’m sure if people knew who they were they would get asked to draw so many things!
“Dad sometimes tries to grow a beard, It’s mainly just bumfluff so looks a bit weird.”
