Let’s face it, ID photos are not the most flattering variety – most of us wind up looking a little more lacklustre than we’d like to believe we actually are. But take that very same ID photo and give it to Tyla Mason, and you’ll come out looking like you stepped straight off of an indie film set.
When we interviewed Tyla last year she let us in on her habit of collecting ID photographs, but only recently did we stumble upon the series of delightfully wonky, rapid-fire drawings that her collection inspired. Done on various types of coloured card, the portraits capture their subjects in all their toothy grinned, squinty eyed, and utterly endearing glory.
Check out some of Tyla’s other recent work on her Tumblr.
