My kid could draw that (actually, I don’t think so)

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…

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.
