Sirohi-instagram

Everybody on Instagram thinks that their photos are awesome. However, when an artist such as Suraj Sirohi gets a hold of your silly faux-vintage photography, he improves them with illustration.

Created on his new Galaxy Note 3 Neo, mundane food photos become more interesting with Sirohi’s doodles. For example, your humdrum picture of oranges would’ve received a lot more likes, had there been faces on them in the first place.

See more below and over at Instagram here.
