Drawings by Kids with Serious Health Conditions Turned Into Magical Photographs – Starring Themselves
In this ambitious and heart-wrenching project, Shawn Van Daele takes drawings done by children born or living with serious health conditions, and brings them to life as real photographs – starring the children themselves, showing them that Anything Is Possible. Indeed.
Given a choice between laughing and wincing at these embarrassing childhood photos, we’d obviously go for the former. But only because of two things: 1. we aren’t one of the kiddos pictured and 2. no one was cruel enough to take a picture in our time to scar us for life. Double score.
Don’t let this kid near the Monopoly set. Or any wallets. Or any important documents for work.

You won’t see kids playing house in these playful and slightly sinister works by collage artist Joe Webb, who makes it entirely believable that kids, yes, kids, are eating clouds like candy floss, stealing the sun to make an eclipse, or painting planets into existence. Clearly they got bored of playing house.
Sylvia Plath is probably known best for her emotionally tumultuous poetry, so it’s hard to imagine that she’s also written The Bed Book for children, a collection of poems about, well, beds. Her primary audience really, were her own kids. The original British edition came with illustrations by artist Quentin Blake. It’s a really charming […]
