We all know there is nothing as expansive and pure and all-encompassing as the imaginations of children. Those little un-biased brains have nothing much to worry about (hopefully…) and so they just connect right away. Kids don’t edit or judge or over-think themselves. They’re awesome.
With “The Monster Engine”, New Jersey-based illustrator Dave Devries takes the drawings of children and re-envisions them as more realistic looking art. I can’t tell you how much I love how faithful he is to the original drawings. He doesn’t edit or try to improve them at all – he just faithfully transfers them with a more experienced artistic skill. Can you imagine being a little kid and then seeing your drawing come to life like this? It would blow my little kid mind.
