Kids’ Monster Doodles Transformed Into Professional Works Of Art
In a world where everything is based on technology, kids grow up pushing buttons and staring at a screen. The 21st Century kids have forgotten what its like to pickup a pencil or a crayon these days and just sketch and doodle.
The Monster Project was brought up first in Texas and brings together elementary students and more than 100 professional artists that help remind the kids just how strong their imagination is. The gallery contains original student sketches and professional recreations side-by-side, which prove just how powerful their imaginations are!
We love how accurate and detailed the professional sketches are.
1. I would name this monster ‘MaKnito’ (looks like something my grandma would knit me)
2. This monster seems pretty scary but lovable at the same time <3
We are SO thankful for all of the incredible people who help us make The Monster Project happen. One billion thanks to @jingoillo who helped us organize the Indianapolis arm of our project this year and found us the most wonderful school to work with. Shout out to @ipspark82 for letting us work with your incredible students!! More thanks to all the amazing pro artists who donated their time and talents to show these children the power of their imaginations and especially to the Indianapolis artists who took time out of their busy schedules to visit their kids in person. To @sakuraofamerica and Pacon, thank you SO SO MUCH for donating art supplies to our students so they can continue to create and develop their creativity long after we leave their classrooms. One more giant thanks to Jingo's whole Indianapolis team who helped us document these moments, like @caosulli who took these beautiful pictures! And all the love to our followers and supporters–your encouragement is so wonderful and we love being able to share this with you. ❤️ Happy Thanksgiving from The Monster Project!!
3. When Frankie Valli sang “Cant Take My Eyes Off You,” I’m pretty sure he had this monster in his head.
4. I find this sketch pretty disturbing… :0
It was big fun being involved with The Monster Project this year. This is my contribution to the collaboration. What's The Monster Project? Elementary students draw monsters. Then artists from all over the world reimagine those monsters in their own unique styles. The project teaches children about the power of their imaginations and encourages them to pursue their creative potential. It shows them that their ideas are important and exposes them to the magic of art and collaboration. Valeria, a young artist in Indianapolis created the monster on the left. My version of Valeria's drawing is on the right. It's oil paint on paper, 17"x22". Check out the entire 2017 Monster Project of 100 new monsters: https://themonsterproject.org/monster-gallery/ #TheMonsterProject #illustration #painting #collaboration #arteducation

We're always floored by what AJ Jefferies throws down! He truly brought this brilliant student's drawing to life. pic.twitter.com/AjH7TGYhtk

This was one of the most rewarding projects I’ve worked on in all my days of doodling, that smile says it all. – – #instaillustration #graphicdesign #digitalart #wacom #adobe #photoshop #art #design #instaart #illustrationdaily #illustration #sketch #drawing #posterart #poster #alternativeposterart #doaly #artist #digitalpainting #madewitheacom #simplycooldesign #supplyanddesign #thedesignfix #themonsterproject #monster
