The Monster Engine harnesses the purest creativity found in children and transforms their scribbles and art work into more professional looking paintings.

Instead of just seeking inspiration from, or reinterpreting, their work, Dave Devries asks, “What would children's drawings look like if they could be painted realistically?”

The Monster Engine is the first book in a series about repainting the drawings of children in more realistic ways.

Implications - Dave Devries doesn't focus on improving the drawings at all; his only concern is to redraw the image with a more experienced hand. The featured images are incredibly fascinating and feature renderings of Super Man and lots of monsters. Using children's drawings as inspiration can lead to some amazing works!
