Father turns son's cute drawings into terrifying reality

The line between cute and terrifying is sometimes a tough one to toe.

This father, who creates real life versions of his 6-year-old son Dom's drawings, knows it all too well.

See some of the duo's masterpieces:

Mum says that pheasants are actually fowl So rather than pheasants, I've drawn you this owl #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawing #childrensdrawings #childrensartwork #childrensart #childart #childsart #childartist #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidsart #kidsartwork #owl #owlofinstagram #owlsofinstagram #owldrawing #birddrawing #bird

I always draw things that I actually saw But quite what this is, I'm not really sure #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensart #childsartwork #childsart #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawingsarethebest #kidsart #kidsartwork #monster #monsterdrawing
For yesterday's drawing, did you see what I wrote? Well I've still no idea. Perhaps some kind of goat? #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensart #childrensartwork #childsart #childart #childartist #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidsartwork #kidsart #kidsdrawingsarethebest #kidart #kidartist #goat #farm #farmyard #farmanimals #goatmonster #onthefarm #goats #goatsofanarchy #farmlife #monsterdrawing
My brother Al wants to travel in space So keeps drawing rockets all over the place #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensart #childrensartwork #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidsart #kidsartwork #childartist #kidartist #kidart #rocket #spacerocket #spaceship #planetearth #spacetravel #spaceshuttle #space

After drawing my lemur, I went back to the zoo Can you tell which animal I then went and drew? #kidsdrawing #thingsihavedrawn #zoo #zooanimals #zooanimal #giraffe #giraffes #theresaclueinthehashtag @instagiraffes @giraffesrc00l @ilovegiraffes27 @zslwhipsnadezoo
I know you might think that I'm having a laugh Well I'm not because this is an actual giraffe #kidsdrawing #thingsihavedrawn #zoo #zooanimals #zooanimal #giraffe #giraffes @instagiraffes @giraffesrc00l @ilovegiraffes27 @zslwhipsnadezoo #thepoke @_thepoke
Here's a drawing I've done of my Dad I've drawn him just right so I hope he's not sad #kidsdrawing #thingsihavedrawn #dad #daddy
Dad sometimes tries to grow a beard It's mainly just bumfluff so looks a bit weird #kidsdrawing #thingsihavedrawn #dad #daddy
I'll start with a picture I've drawn of my cat You might be surprised but she does look like that #kidsdrawing #thingsihavedrawn #cat #catpictures
Just look at this photo Mum's taken of her She's just like a sausage all covered in fur #kidsdrawing #thingsihavedrawn #cat #catpictures
I'm sure I've seen that strange swan before Last winter when the snow had started to thaw #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #thingsihavedrawn #swan #bird #snowbird #lastwinter #thaw
I built him with Mum in the garden one day It was his melty body that gave it away #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #thingsihavedrawn #snowbird #swan #snowman #doyouwanttobuildasnowman #winter #snow #thaw #Christmas
You'll never believe what I've drawn this weekend And I promise I saw it - it's not even pretend #thingsihavedrawn #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidsart #kidsartwork #childrensdrawing #childrensdrawings #childrensart #childrensartwork #childartist #robotdinosaur #dinosaur #monster #monstersofinstagram #arts_gallery #arts_secret #drawsofinsta #dailyarts
I've never seen anything like it before It's a huge flying robot dinosaur #thingsihavedrawn #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidsart #kidsartwork #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensart #childrensartwork #childartist #childrensillustration #kidsillustration #robotdinosaur #dinosaur #monster #toydinosaur #monstersofinstagram #dinosaursofinstagram @dinosaurwhisperer @dinosaur_Jo #arts_gallery #arts_secret #drawsofinsta #dailyarts
The city aquarium - that's where to go To draw a real clownfish a bit like Nemo #kidsdrawing #thingsihavedrawn #clownfish #findingnemo #londonaquarium @London_aquarium #sealife #sealifecentre @sealifebham
It's sometimes too dark to see what lies beneath But I drew him just right, except for his teeth #kidsdrawing #thingsihavedrawn #clownfish #findingnemo #londonaquarium @London_aquarium #sealife #sealifecentre @sealifebham
Something quite strange that I don't understand Has happened today to the shape of my hand #thingsihavedrawn #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #kidsart #kidart #kidartist #childrensart #childrensdrawing #childrensdrawings #childartist #childart #kidsartwork #childrensartwork #hand #bodypart #fingers #drawing #kidshand #strangehand
I'm worried my hand doesn't look how it should Shall I go to the doctors? Ooh - that cake looks good #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawing #childrensdrawings #childrensart #childrensartwork #childartist #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidart #kidsartwork #kidartist #hand #fingers #greenfingers #strangehand #hulkhand #hulkhands #monsterhand #monsterhands #scaryhand #cake #birthdaycake #deliciouscake @artss.support
Don't be so silly - this isn't the sun! It's clearly a sketch of a happy lion. I've not drawn his body, instead just his head, And coloured his mane in with yellow and red. #thingsihavedrawn #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidsartwork #kidsart #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childartist #lion #lionmane #lionshead #mane #zoo #zooanimal
Here's the real lion - he's a strange looking chap. Perhaps he's just groggy after his 20 hour nap. He's the king of the zoo - the biggest wild cat. But he won't scare a thing with a smile like that. #thingsihavedrawn #throughtheeyesofachild #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensdrawings #childartist #lion #kingofthejungle #lions #zoo #mumsnet #zooanimal #lionsofinstagram
A zebra's a bit like a black and white horse Here's one (with something that's missing of course) #thingsihavedrawn #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #kidsartwork #kidartist #childrensdrawing #childrensdrawings #childrensart #childartist #zebra #horse #zebradrawing #zebras #zebrasofinstagram
White stripes on black, or black stripes on white? Here is a photo to see which is right. #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensartwork #childartist #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidsartwork #zoo #zebra #zebrasofinstagram #zebradrawing #zooanimal #zslwhipsnadezoo #idrawwhatisaw
Here is the lifecycle of a butterfly Look on the right at that funny little guy I saw him in the garden, just there on the ground Although I think the arrows might be the wrong way round #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensartwork #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidsartwork #childartist #butterfly #cocoon #lifecycle #lifecycleofabutterfly
I was out in the garden and looked in the sky You'll never guess who I saw flutter by #thingsihavedrawn #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidsartwork #kidartist #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensartwork #childartist #butterfly #butterflies
Here's a drawing (I've since thrown in the bin) It's clearly a shark, but just look at that fin! #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensart #childrensartwork #childartist #childsart #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #kidartist #kidsart #kidsartwork #shark #sharkdrawing #sharky #sharks #sharkdoodle
Is it a Reef Shark or perhaps a Great White? One thing's for sure, I drew it just right. (Check out my drawing from 3 weeks ago - the one before the pink flamingo). #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawing #childrensdrawings #childartist #childrensart #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #kidsartwork #kidsart #kidsartist #shark #sharky #Greatwhite #reefshark #discoversharks #sharkdaily #sharkaholic #sharks #sharkweek
I've drawn some new faces - do you like what I've done? One's happy, one's sad and one's having fun #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childartist #childsartwork #childsart #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #kidsart #kidsartwork #kidart #kidartist #funnyfaces #drawingfaces #doodleface #doodlefaces #littleartist
Here's the toy I based the sad face on He's upset because he's not sure where his fingers have gone #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawing #childrensdrawings #childartist #childsartwork #childart #kidsdrawing #kidsdrawings #kidsart #kidartist #kidsartwork #funnyface #drawingfaces #doodleface #littleartist #brio #briotoys #toyman #toyfigure
You know what I draw always look real? Well you might be surprised, but this isn't a seal #thingsihavedrawn #kidsdrawings #kidsdrawing #kidsart #kidsartwork #kidartist #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensart #childrensartwork #littleartist #childartist #seal #sealion #drawing #sealions #sealionsofinstagram #sealsofinstagram #seals #biro #birodrawing
They're sea lions I think, not seals I'd say, Their flippers are longer and their bodies less grey. #thingsihavedrawn #childrensdrawings #childrensdrawing #childrensart #childrensartwork #childartist #childsart #kidsdrawings #kidsartwork #kidsdrawing #kidsart #kidartist #sealions #sealion #seal #zoo #underwater #waterworld #sealionsofinstagram #sealionshow

From zoo animals to cars to portraits, Dom's father has fulfilled the reality of a 6-year-old's imagination and, while it's kind of cute, it's also terrifying. And he's been kind enough to make an Instagram account for the world to see and share.
