My new favorite thing on the internet is The Monster Project. They recruit illustrators/artists to recreate monsters from children’s drawings. Such a cool idea!
From their website:
By collaborating with the students and finding inspiration from their imaginings, we hope to help them recognize the value of their ideas and make them feel excited about the potential of their own minds. Creativity comes in many forms, and we hope to encourage their exploration of their own unique perceptions of the world we share. And, while we’re at it, we want to introduce to them the notion of art as a legitimate career path.
Here are a few of my favorites. You can see all the art so far on The Monster Project website.
