What’s Astro doing? He’s touching grandpa’s nose and saying “nose, nose, nose!”
Drawings For My Grandchildren is the Instagram account of Chan Jae Lee, a 75-year-old Korean man and artist based in Brazil. Separated from his grandchildren who live in Korea and New York, Chan started using Instagram after his son insisted it would be a better use of his retirement than watching television.
While Chan initially shot down the idea, the birth of his youngest grandchild, Astro, made him realize that he won’t always be around to see his grandchildren grow up and agreed to create the account as a kind of virtual gift to them.
Helped along by his wife (who writes the captions for each post) Chan has completed a drawing a day, sharing everything from family memories and everyday moments to random thoughts and life lessons. Check out more of Chan’s heartwarming work below!
Moscow-based creative Misha Petrick’s brilliant gifs hilariously capture what Instagram would be like if we were all still using Windows 95. More images below!
One of my favourite Instagram accounts right now is @awsmkids, featuring a couple of skateboarding phenoms. Sky is 7 years old and her younger brother Ocean is only 4 years old! The video clips below will either get you stoked or make you want to give up skating. I guess this is what happens when you teach a fetus how to ollie.
