This Mom Draws Her Baby Girl into Some Epic Adventures, and We're Kind of Obsessed

Thu Phan's two-dimentional creations of her 20-month-old daughter Banksii are both awe-inspiring and envy-inducing. Check out the photos.

When I post pics of my kids on Instagram, I'm lucky if I even have time to slap on a filter before clicking the "share" button. Which is why I am completely in awe of Australian mom Thu Pham, who turns her posts of 20-month-old daughter Banksii into legit works of art.

See what I mean? Even her inspirational captions are spot-on. Her feed is totally addicting—once you start scrolling through Banksii's illustrated two-dimentional adventures, you won't be able to stop until you find out what she's up to next.

Is it weird that this toddler's faux world looks way cooler than my adult real one? I mean, check out this rendering of a mini boho glam Banksii getting her festival on at Coachella:

Rock on, girl!

So how does Pham craft these awe-inducing scenarios? By using the photo editing app PicsArt.

"I have a million photos stored on my phone and I just wanted to do something with them as they were sitting there being forgotten," she explained to The Huffington Post. "I did a basic sketch on a funny photo I had taken. My mind was going through all different types of scenarios that I could draw and I found myself spending hours drawing adventures on little Banksii."

Most recently, her little girl has taken up snowboarding:

Gone full rocker on the drums:

And gone out for a spin on a Vespa while decked in a blue tutu:

She is seriously #lifegoals! No wonder her account now has close to 14,000 followers!

  1. My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SleepBaby .org<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SleepBaby .org<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
