Coloring Inside the Lines: Dad Brings His Kids’ Drawings to Life

Some parents see the real potential of their child’s artwork. Fred Giovannitti took the drawings his little ones made for him to take on business trips and transformed them into full-colored images. Combining the playfulness of a child’s mind and the subtle artistry of a pretty impressive artist make these illustrations more than just fridge-worthy.

Giovannitti colored his daughter Sofia’s drawing of Santa for the holidays.
