Illustrator Maria Jose Da Luz creates adorable, playful portraits inspired by a single photograph. Her work focuses on children, and she digitally draws their likenesses in a sweet, cartoonish style. Round faces, rosy cheeks, and over-sized heads are all part of her illustrations' charm. You can’t help but want to smile at the sight of their cute faces!
In addition to illustrating each kid, Da Luz often adds a fun twist to every drawing. She’ll transport the subject to another environment or include a buddy in their portrait. One photograph shows a child dressed in a Superman t-shirt, laughing as he’s being tossed into the air by an adult. Da Luz’s rendition still features the kid in mid-air, but this time it’s with Batman. It’s these amusing details that make her works memorable.
