Omaha-based graphic designers Martin and Michelle Bruckner live with a constant source for creative ideas - their 5-year-old daughter, Harper Grace. She says the wackiest and hilariously funny things sometimes, and her dad had a stroke of genius when he decided to start drawing them. Visualizing the things kids say is a daunting task, but his cool drawings are somehow exactly what we would expect a "cute Batman" or a "circus goat" to look like.
The project is named Spaghetti Toes, a title which originates from a family dinner conversation when Michelle had to inform young Harper Grace that pasta certainly has no place near anyone's feet. It's innocently comical moments like these that feed the fire of Martin's colorful and unique artworks. As absurd as they may be, they remind us of a time when our imaginations were also limitless and make us wonder if it might be worthwhile to take life a little less seriously.
Enjoy some of Spaghetti Toes' greatest hits below, and be sure to vote for the cute drawings that speak to your inner child the most. You can also check out Martin's latest book, I Love You With All My Butt, here.
