I first saw this on the Rag and Bones blog, and it blew me away. The website is called "The Monster Engine" and the artist is David DeVries. Basically, he started taking children's drawings of monsters... usually simple colors and single lines... and create a "realistic" version that brings their drawings to life. And they are amazing! While they are stylistically very different, the similarities are striking. The imagination of the kids and of David is truly inspiring.
David created a book out of this, and is working on others books including superheroes and underwater worlds.
