In her series entitled 'Teddy Box,' artist Pascal Vilcollet portrays young children playing dress-up and disguising themselves as different cuddly creatures.

While the animal heads take on a slightly amusing appearance when worn haphazardly on the heads of these cute little kids, it is the somber expression on the children's faces, as though they are posing for a serious portraiture session, that makes this series even more adorable and humorous. Washes of color create a dreamy, cloud-like setting for the paintings, enhancing the imaginative creativity evidenced by the artist in her series.

Just like deer caught in headlights, the children in the portraits by Pascal Vilcollet look as though they have been caught in the middle of some fantastical childhood game.
