Anime artist and doting dad Thomas Romain continues to create professional illustrations inspired by his young sons' doodles and drawings. Since we last checked in on this ongoing series of father/son art, Romain has created “The Father And Sons Design Workshop,” a creation hub and platform for sharing new art with the public.
Much like their earlier collaborations, the Romains' recent art combines imaginative, kid-designed sketches with expert-level artistic skills. Romain gives his children complete creative control over the project, noting that they are “free to draw whatever they want.” This freedom culminates in a collection of outlandish and otherworldly anime-inspired art, with a range of peculiar settings and eccentric characters resembling everything from robots and aliens to plants and animal hybrids.
As a result of this eye-opening series, Romain has realized his sons' artistic interests and the limitlessness of their imaginations. To support their creative inclinations, he has decided to start a Patreon page, where patrons are given early access to new illustrations and are invited to interact with the artist. Through this site, Romain hopes to keep the empowering project alive and encourage his children to pursue their passions. “With your help, we will be able to buy new sketchbooks, watercolors and brushes, make the project grow one drawing after another,” he explains, “and if this page is a success, maybe secure enough money to send the kids to the best art schools in the future!”
