CHILDREN HAVE THE UNIQUE ABILITY TO TAP INTO a consciousness that is untainted and uncontaminated by training. Yep, training. Art instruction in schools is certainly not a bad thing, but it’s their job to see such naive approaches to visualization expand.

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 drawings made by children, all around 6 years old and then their representations made by Dave DeVries.
