Any parent will tell you they've had a lot of practice reacting to some slightly subpar drawings by their offspring. Try as they might, kids just can't seem to get it right when it comes to recreating realistic images. But one dad found surprising inspiration in these dodgy artworks.
Dad Tom looks over drawings by his 2 sons, Al and Dom - and then uses his photoshop skills to make them "real." The results are equal parts hilarious and horrifying - and oddly a little bit heartwarming, too.
