Regular visitors to Bored Panda will no doubt be familiar with the incredible artwork of Thomas Romain. He's a French anime artist living in Tokyo who's worked on various popular series including Space Dandy, Basquash!, and Aria, but his best ideas are the ones that come from his sons.

Working together in what he calls the Father And Sons Design Workshop, Thomas and his kids come up with an eclectic assortment of funny, creepy, and sometimes downright bizarre creatures. Well, it's actually his children who think of them, and then Thomas adds his professional touch to turn them into everything from one-eyed beasts and plant monsters to giant robots and pink-haired hoverboarders. Check out some of our favorites below, and don't forget to vote for the best! You can follow them on Instagram and YouTube, and you can also support them on Patreon.
