Just in case you haven’t seen this, here’s something to stop and smile about. For the most part that I’ve been bloghopping, art has repeatedly proven its value to its ability to recreate reality into an awesome fantasy, which is always inspiring to see. Just take a look at these.
I’ve only seen this recently, but outside of her freelance assignments, one creative mom has been gaining worldwide attention for her creative collaboration with her son, that is, without the son’s knowledge. Before the Western world have heard of this work, she’s already compiled it all into a book, Sleepy Baby, in Taiwan last year.
Artist Sioin Queenie Liao, who is very much inspired just by watching the sleeping three-month-old Wengenn Liao, first published this series of adorable photographs, Wengenn In Wonderland, on her Facebook account. To create each snapshot, Queenie simply set up the props, stuffed animals and other materials beforehand, then once Wengenn fell asleep, she put him at the center of her vision, which has pretty much taken shape into reality, and start taking pictures of the beautifully-composed fantasy.
The mother of three also takes adorable photographs of the other two waking children in fairy costumes, which is really sweet. I guess getting creative makes the work of being a mom a lot less heavy.
See how Queenie’s keen and loving eyes pictured her son as he dreams:
Like … HOW CUTE ARE THESE?!?!?!
I don’t know what is it about Asian babies, but they’re always born with irresistibly chubby cheeks. Exhibit #1: Wengenn himself. Exhibit #2: The picture 10 found and forwarded to me. It’s currently set as my BBM display picture so I can stare at it all day:
Exhibit #3: This is Garfield and me. Only I was fully awake and posing, obviously.
Have looked through everything on Wengenn in Wonderland? Which fairytale-esque photograph of him is your favorite? I found it extremely difficult to pick just one, but I’ll have to go with the French artist. He’s so poised.
