The photos you are about to see are part of the "The Monster Engine Project", created by Dave DeVries. It includes a book, a demonstration, lecture and a gallery exhibition.

The Monster Engine is based on the idea of creating realistic paintings from children's drawings. It all turned out to be a great success and an innovative concept. Sometimes artists just happen to get to one point where their imagination stops. But not children.

They are an endless "resource" for creations and we are going to prove that to you with this post. 22 images presenting the drawing made by children, all around 6 years old and then their representations made by Dave DeVries.
