Just a cute site I stumbled upon the other day.

The Monster Engine

This is one of my favorites.

It showcases a little project that an artist(s?) has– they are recreating children’s sketches as full blown, realistic paintings. There are several pictures of ones already done, and they show a side by side comparison of the child’s drawing and the painting that came out of it. There’s also a giant mural done by several foster children that was recreated into one particularly interesting painting.

Seriously, look at that thing.

You can take a closer look at images on the mural (as well as the original, kid version of it) here.

Don’t you love to see the nonsense that kids draw? I totally want to go find one of my old scribbles and see what I can make of it. It sounds quite fun.
