Tom Curtis est le papa de Al et Dom, c'est lui qui gère le compte Instagram @ThingsIHaveDrawn sur lequel il partage les dessins de ses deux enfants aujourd'hui âgés de 8 et 11 ans.
Les dessins représentent souvent des formes difformes, voire abstraites, qui sont supposées représenter des animaux, des membres de leur famille, des maisons, des objets du quotidien, des voitures.. Vous pourrez même trouver des portraits de célèbres personnages tels que James Bond ou Jack Sparrow !
Ayant retrouvé d'anciens dessins, Tom Curtis s'est lancé dans l'adaptation de ceux-ci sous forme de montage photo sur Photoshop. Le père de famille donne vie à tous ces animaux farfelus ce qui a fortement plu aux internautes, à la fois attendris et amusés de voir comment les enfants représentaient les éléments qui les entourent.
Le compte Instagram connait un véritable succès sur la toile; il comptabilise plus de 768 000 abonnées et des dizaines de milliers de likes et de partages.
Here’s a dolphin, jumping out of the swell. Is it a robot? It’s quite hard to tell. __ This week we learned that a New Zealand-based company called Edge Innovations has created awesomely cool robotic dolphins so realistic that you apparently can’t tell them from the real thing. But they cost an eye-watering $26m each according to the @guardian. Well - we’ve created our own version that - as with all our creations - also looks exactly like the real thing. But this one’s just a picture - and didn’t cost $26m. __ #thingsihavedrawn #dolphin #edgeinnovations
We can’t go out to interesting places. But we can stay at home and draw mums’ and dads’ faces. ___ Hello everyone. In the UK we’ve completed our first full week of schools being shut and most people working from home. So I've decided to do some images with a few of my work colleagues - people I work with in my day job I mean, which isn’t Things I Have Drawn. I’ve worked at a great company called MediaCom in London for the past 20 years, and although it’s strange to now just be chatting to people on a computer screen instead of face-to-face, it will, I’m sure, become something we all get used to over time - what, with kids bursting into the room during important conference calls and everything. So here are my first two pics in what might, if they prove popular, become a little series: ‘Things I Have Drawn at Home’ (although in reality it’s the smiley animals that usually get the most likes). In this first image we have Nuria and her little girl Mia, and in the second one is Paul (also known as @themultidad) and that’s his son Finn’s brilliant drawing. If you like them, we’ll do more (I guess we’ll measure their success on the number of laughing emojis). Of course, I could have just asked Nuria and Paul to send me a photo each, rather than doing a screengrab over Zoom, Teams or whatever - but where's the fun in that, hey? They’re pretty lo-res but that’s exactly how they looked on my screen. Stay safe everyone, and if you can, definitely stay home. ___ #thingsihavedrawn #thingsihavedrawnathome #stayhome #wfh #hellofrom #stayathome @mediacomuk @mediacomglobal
Here’s what you’ve all been waiting for… It’s Mia - a Chocolate Labrador! ___ Hi everyone. Tom here, the boys’ dad. So this weekend, Instagram’s Weekend Hashtag Project is #whpunexpected. If you’ve been following us for a while, you might not be especially surprised to see this photo of our friend’s pet dog looking very much like the drawing we posted yesterday. But imagine if you’d not come across Things I Have Drawn before and you met this rather unusual looking dog in the street. Err - where’s her nose?! ___ #thingsihavedrawn #kidsdrawing #chocolatelabrador
