Dad Colors Kid's Drawings While Away On Business

December 3, 2013


This is a series of colored pictures created by Redditor Tatsputin and his children. They draw pictures before he leaves on a business trip, and while he's away he adds the color and returns them when he's back home. I do something similar with my kids when I'm away. "I thought you didn't have any kids." I don't, and you know why? Because-- "No woman will sleep with you." Is that how it works? I shared a hotel room with a female friend for a wedding once, do you think I should call her? Does it make a difference if I slept in a sleeping bag?

Hit the jump for a bunch more, the first half of which in colored pencil, the rest digitally using an iPad.











Thanks to tuqueque, who never colors outside the lines. EVER.

    I do not believe the originals are that of a child. Unless his children are artistically inclined, I doubt anyone other than the father drew them. The artist draws and colors very well and the finished product is nice, but his need for attention is weak.

    i've drawn tons of stuff like that chicken as a child

    I'm with soren on this I have seen kids draw even better than this and we are talking three years old. Some people just have a gift.

    If you ask many artists, like myself, the ability to create is hereditary. Some of us are born with it, others learn.

    if you're serious & not just trolling, then you're the one that has to deal with being an unhappy douche bag naysayer for the rest of his or her life, so whatever. this shits cute.

    Man... I really can't tell if you're trolling right now or if you're a moron for real lol... seriously. If it's a troll, you're pretty good at pretending to be really dumb... for whatever that's worth. If not then... good luck in life.

  • convinceme

  • You don't have kids, do ya..? ;)

    These are fantastic. A lot of them have a Tim Burton vibe to them. Great stuff.

    Proof yet again that I suck as a parent. All my kids get when I get home from a business trip is a tired and hungover dad...which is really the gift that keeps on giving.
