Fathers are adorable, especially when it comes to their daughters. A tremendous source of inspiration, a father-daughter bond is truly magical. They might not express their love for you too often, but deep down, they have a tender heart that’s full of love and care.

Inspired by a father’s role in shaping a woman’s life and how they stand like an incredible support, Debasmita, an artist, started a project called My Father Illustrations. 

Here are 20 illustrations inspired by some famous daughters and the life-changing advice they received from their dads.
