The Monster Engine Turns Children’s Artwork Into Something Terrifyingly Awesome
Have you ever heard of The Monster Engine? While it could certainly be described as an unstoppable force that feeds on children, such a description would lead you to believe that The Monster Engine is inherently evil - when in reality, it is anything but.
Dave Devries is the author of The Monster Engine, a project he describes as "a book, a demonstration, lecture and a gallery exhibition." It certainly has commonalities with all of these things, but perhaps most importantly, it's a service that turns adorable children's artwork into something even more incredible.
Devries' process is simple - he projects a child's drawing and traces each line, then applies "a combination of logic and instinct" to create some of the freakiest illustrations I've ever seen. I don't think this is necessarily what a child thinks of when he's setting out to draw Superman, but the results are glorious nonetheless.
