Shawn Van Daele Turns The Drawings By Children With Health Conditions Into Photographs
We can learn so much from children, they tend to have a different outlook on life. This is what Shawn has learned on his recent venture. He has begun a project called The Drawing Hope Project where he uses the drawings by children with health conditions and creates realistic photographs based on those drawings. The process takes 10-12 hours for a final product from start to finish. It is truly inspiring!
“I’ve learned that we (as adults) have so much we can learn from children (with health conditions or not). They take life as it comes, one day at a time. These kids face what’s handed to them with grace and strength, and they’ve learned that from their families, who are equally strong and courageous. It’s so easy to take life for granted, as cliche as it sounds – there is always something bigger than yourself or your problems that can put it all into perspective for you. This project does that for me, and has done so already for many people. I’ve also learned where my heart is – this project is the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done; using the talents you’ve been given to put ‘good’ out into the world while doing something you love…it doesn’t get any better than that.”
