Soosh, a 37-year-old Ukranian artist who didn’t have her father by her side while growing up decided to illustrate the sweetness of a father-daughter bond. Seeing women with supportive dads around made her see what a huge difference a father’s presence can make to a daughter’s life. Infact, studies have shown that women who are blessed with encouraging and caring fathers, actually grow up to be more confident, successful and independent.

Soosh created a series of illustrations showing a father-daughter bond. Check out her work below and don’t forget to vote for your favorite.
