Children’s Artwork Painted Realistically Look Amazing


The Monster Engine partnered with a bunch of lovely children to answer the question: What would happen if children’s artwork was painted with the precision and expertise of a skilled artist? The creator David Devries writes, “It began at the Jersey Shore in 1998, where my niece Jessica often filled my sketchbook with doodles. While I stared at them, I wondered if color, texture and shading could be applied for a 3D effect.”

Needless to say it was a great idea because the results are haunting, beautiful and stunning. The Monster Engine has now released books, holds lectures and gallery exhibitions to discuss and review the work of these kids and the artists who reinterpret their work.
