The Monster Engine is a book by artist and author Dave Devries. It is the answer to his question What would a child’s drawing look like if it were painted realistically? Actually they look pretty darn scary. A-mazing, but scary. I wonder if the kids got nightmares. Where are the rainbows and kittens?
It looks like a very interesting book with interviews with the kids on the process and what they thought of the finished work.
Maybe not the book for bedtime. Not unless a bit of babysitter’s revenge is in order <but that would be wrong>.
Oh look, there IS a rainbow after all…
