Project Has Artists Recreate Kid’s Monster Drawings in their own Styles

Giant Monster Movies are a staple part of a horror childhood, and many horror fans hold these B-Movie stars in fond regard. It’s a tradition we want to see continue for a long time, and that’s why The Monster Project is so awesome – it has the next generation of monster fans using their imaginations. The project is the undertaking of a passionate collection of artists (illustrators, designers, watercolorists, metalworkers, etc.) who share a common goal: to help children recognize the power of their own imaginations and to encourage them to pursue their creative potential.

Children are invited to draw a monster of their own collaboration, which an artist then re-creates in their own style. The artist then works with the kids in developing their skills in art and sharing techniques and ideas with them. Their website explains “With a decreasing emphasis on arts in schools, many children don’t have the opportunity for creative exploration they deserve. That’s a monstrous trend we would like to destroy. As artists ourselves, we understand how important that initial creative exposure is and how it can truly alter the shape of a child’s future.” 

Who knows, maybe some of these kids could be the FX and monster makers of the next generation. The one who drew the creature with the open stomach wound with corpse inside – someone set them up for a chat with Tom Savini!
