Best Illustrations, Everyone has a different connection with their parents, but we all have a soft place for seeing fathers look after their daughters.
Watching them learn how to engage with their young daughters, braid their hair, let them paint their nails, and practise makeup on their daddy is just so precious and lovely. And every daddy’s girl understands that nothing compares to the love and protection you receive from a caring father.
Ukrainian illustrator Snezhana Soosh, who goes by vskafandre on Instagram, depicts the most heartwarming moments between father and daughter that will either make you think back to your childhood or make you wish you had something like that. You’d think Soosh draws inspiration from her own childhood but turns out that’s not exactly the case.
In her interview with Huffington Post Soosh says: “I always wanted to have a tender and loving relationship with my own father, but he didn’t know how to show his love so most of the time was distant and cold. I was observing other fathers with their daughters and so loved each tender moment they had together. I think I drew what I lacked and very much wanted – to feel loved and protected by my big papa.”
She also draws inspiration from her own relationship with her son Frol. She homeschools him so they spend a lot of time together so sometimes she just paints what they do together but replaces it with her characters of a little girl and a big father. Soosh says Frol is always the first one to see her illustrations and tell her what he thinks. She hopes that seeing these drawings will make him grow up a good man and someday become a great loving father to his own kids.
Here are just a few of her adorable illustrations:
It’s cute how kids are so small but require so much space.

I don’t remember the rules, how’s that for a checkmate.

They grow up so fast but you’ll have those marks on the door forever.
Yeah, how does that feel? Not painful at all, is it, dad?
You can read your newspaper in peace but only if I can use you as a mattress.
Listen, neither of us wanted this, but sometimes you gotta go to work.
Let’s make a mud cake. No, wait, a pretty unicorn cake. No, wait, can we have rainbow sprinkles and jelly warms at the same time?
Big moose, little moose.
