Dad Colours His Kids' Drawings

Tattoo artist Fred Giovannitti who spends 10 days out of each month, out of state to work, colours his kids' drawings when he is on the plane. When he leaves for his monthly trips, the kids  give him pictures they've drawn. Fred colors the drawings, transforms them into amazing works of art and gives the pictures back to Freddie, aged eight, and Sofia, six, when he returns.

'My children like to draw me pictures for my trip so I can keep them close to me while I'm away,' he says.

What a sweet collaboration between a loving father and his kids!



Amazing transformation in his children's work...then into the coloring.


Where do you find these fabulous subjects you post about?!!!

Beautiful works and the connection between kids and father must be something everyone desire! Good for them.

i think this is a great "bonding" experience. even though they are apart, they have something to look forward to on his return, and he has a piece of them with him on his trips.

The artist Dave Devries' The Monster Engine does this to.

Wow! Love it. I bet his kids love them too. They see he really appreciates their drawings.

WOW! I wonder if he could make the things I try and draw look that good? This is such a cute idea.
