Giving babies that some would look at with pity a whole lot of pizzazz, this awesome artist decorates head-shaping helmets for babies with plagioencephaly with adorable cute and witty paintings.

Babies with plagioencephaly (flat-head syndrome) suffer from a condition that flattens the backs of babies heads either at birth or from lying down too much. So these tiny little tots have to don these head-shaping helmets to help correct the plagioencephaly -- and artist Paula Strawn turns what could be a boring helmet into a colorful canvas. Painting everything from pop culture movies and cartoons to renaissance art and funny looking fruits, Stawn's painted helmets will put a smile on anyone's face when they see the helmets -- including the babies.
