Sylvie Reuter's illustrations may not be the prettiest or the most technical, but therein lies its charm. In particular, she often illustrates children with awkward proportions, making viewers instantaneously empathize with these infants with malformed craniums. It's almost as though each subject draws its inspiration from Tetsuo in the movie Akira.

Looking through Sylvie Reuter's deviantART page, there's also an undercurrent of sorrow in all of her illustrations. The juxtaposition of childlike whimsy with sad and sometimes disturbing scenarios is what makes Reuter's work truly stand out from her peers.
