People say that being a new parent is one of the most exhausting and stressful times you can imagine, so it’s good to see that one dad seems to be having a great time of it.
Lukas Costeur, a Belgian graphic designer, has brilliantly transformed photos of his son Felix into various characters and uploaded them to Tumblr blog SNAPDAD. He does the drawings on Snapchat photos, thinks up a caption and there it is, a sort of adorable comedy gold.
Costeur told Bustle hat his job in product design has gotten him used to sketching but this is a little different:
The difficult part is that I do this on a small smartphone with a normal stylus… It takes about 30 to45 minutes to finish one. If Snapchat doesn’t crash, that is. We’re enjoying every bit of [parenthood], even the harsh sleepless moments. That’s why I started drawing. To make the time he’s trying to fall asleep a bit more enjoyable.Advertisement
It’s great that Lukas is enjoying the perks of fatherhood and I can only hope that he keeps up the good work as little Felix gets older as it could lead to some pretty epic embarrassing dad moments.
