What Would Children’s Illustrations Look Like In Real Life

Korean photographer Yeondoo Jung‘s series that recreates scenes found in children’s drawings is probably one of the most creative works I have ever seen. Some are funny, some fantastical, and some are simply surreal but all of them are beautiful. If these are indeed based on actual drawings by children, one wonders how close the photos came to the original scenes envisioned in each child’s mind.

Here are some photos along with captions I came up with.

Art #1: The Flying Witchman & The Shelf of Teacups

Art #2: My Life Is a Sitcom

Art #3: The Princess That Stands In Pink

    Indeed. It’s a very original work.




    Indeed. God knows what was on the kids mind that made them draw such portraits.

    @Delicately Realitsic

    I wish I were as much creative as them.


    You are not the only one who thought of that. Welcome to the self-centered bandwagon my friend 😛


    More creative than the design of the shoes you bought recently?

    @Disturbed Stranger

    You are not alone on this. I suck terribly.


    That’s an excellent point Marzouq; we need to congratulate the efforts made by the artist than just staying how creative those kids are.


    I guess you can also look at it that way 🙂
