See How This Dad Transforms His Newborn Son Into Iconic Characters
  • How many photo of your child have you posted today? In the last week, month—in his entire lifetime? Too many to count, we bet.

    When you become a parent, you suddenly turn into this sometimes-annoying mom who posts a photo of her baby in every angle, in every outfit change, in every kind of smile or even crying face—every time you get the chance (which really every hour or so, right?). You just can’t help it. 

    Well, this dad from Belgium made it less annoying and ten times cuter to see her newborn’s baby photos!

    Graphic designer Lukas Costeur has racked up solid group of fans who totally love his creative portraits of hie newborn son Felix. The new dad, who earned himself the nickname, Snapdad, uses Snapchat photos and his creativity to morph regular baby photos of Felix and transform him into iconic characters. 

    "It takes about 30-45 minutes to finish one," Costeur told Bored Panda. He adds that the art exercise helps him bond with his son Felix every night. "I'm a father now. We're enjoying every bit of it. Even the harsh sleepless moments. That's why I started drawing,” he said. 

    Felix just turned one months on Christmas day this year, and he has virtually portrayed 33 (and still counting) iconic characters from superheroes, book legends, and even TV pop culture icons. 

    Look at some of his too-cute photos--his dads' captions speak for themselves!
