Artistic Dad Transforms Son Into Mischievous Leprechaun

Artistic Dad Transforms Son Into Mischievous Leprechaun - Awkward Galleries

Alex Lawrence is both a father of six and an art director/web designer/photographer, and he’s known for incorporating his family into his art projects at his website, That Dad Blog. For St. Patrick’s Day last year, Alex used his then-six-month-old son Rockwell to create a series of hilarious “mischievous Leprechaun photos.”

Alex came up with the initial idea but the whole family pitched in to make it happen. Initially, he held up his son (who’s tricked out in an exquisitely detailed leprechaun costume) for the desired pose, then edits and touches up the images in Photoshop. The end result looks good enough to seem real, and they’ll definitely get you into the holiday spirit. Sláinte!

Irish Spring

Irish Spring - Family Portrait

“Going through old pictures tonight and found this blast from the past…..the “Von Lightsey” family portrait!!!! Oh my!! My aunt (who helped run the Grapevine Opry at the time) had her costume designer make these matching outfits for our family to wear to the shows…..well, Mom wanted her to know how grateful we were so she took us Olan Mills for family portraits!! At one of the opry shows, we were all sitting on the front row…and a performer asked if we were a bowling team?!?! Good times! My dad is a great sport! I think Brent and Susan do look adorable with their orange hair and cute grins! I was getting braces put on the next day, so I was not wanting to show my teeth! (goofy nerd, I know!). Glad Mom had us do this picture…it’s created plenty of laughs through the years! Even at my mom’s funeral four and a half years ago…we had this picture as a part of her slideshow. The church was packed, and when this picture came up on the screen, there was a huge rumble of laughter through the tears! Precious memories, for sure!!!”
