If Child’s Drawings Were Painted Realistically

”The Monster Engine is a book, a demonstration, lecture and a gallery exhibition. The premise for all three came from one single question: What would a child’s drawing look like if it were painted realistically”

An excerpt from the text on authors website:

”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. As a painter, I made cartoons look three dimensional every day for the likes of Marvel and DC comics, so why couldn’t I apply those same techniques to a kid’s drawing? That was it… no research, no years of toil, just the curiosity of seeing Jessica’s drawings come to life.”

”The book is a 48-page collection of drawings, paintings, photos and interviews.  The book’s preface explains, in depth, the history, intentions and results of this seven-year project.” – Dave Devries
