Monster Drawings

I’m not sure if any of you have ever heard of Dave Devries, but if you haven’t, he’s an exceptionally creative artist.  His site, The Monster Engine, is a look at a child’s imagination as it pertains to monsters.  And what Dave does with those monsters is quite fascinating actually.  He describes it as this…

The process is simple. I project a child’s drawing with an opaque projector, faithfully tracing each line. Applying a combination of logic and instinct, I then paint the image as realistically as I can. My medium is mixed—primarily acrylic, airbrush, and colored pencil.

The results wind up being pretty bizarre but I have to say, it’s kind of cool to see what your doodles as a kid would look like in the real world.  I’ve selected 15 pictures that I think are awesome.

Enjoy

    These looks like drawings from the Scary Stories book series.

    I should send him some of my old grade school notebooks. I got bored and doodled a lot. The thing is, I had no artistic talent. He would be painting up a bunch of misshapen Ninja Turtles, too.

    I had the exact same thought – would love to see him go to work on some of my old monsters.

    I laughed when I saw this link again! People keep forwarding it to me and our office staff …
    It’s great how kids art is getting some real recognition. Loved these images…Kids from different nationalities have a very different approach to monsters and drawing. It’s fascinating!!! A lot of commonality too…We work with several charities internationally helping kids in hospitals. When I founded my company the idea was to help kids understanding the power of: imagination, drawing, planning and executing. I also wanted to help my son’s fear of monsters ..now I spent hours looking at these wonderful creations…the kids reaction when presented with a stuffed version of their drawings is priceless…we tend to make ours sort of cute though.
    I don’t like plugs…no real name or contact…
    cheers keep drawing!!!
