Children’s monster drawings recreated by professional illustrators

Artists from around the world have created their own interpretations of children’s drawings of monsters.

The Monster Project involves over 100 monster drawings by kids, which a selection of artists from around the globe have interpreted in their own styles.

The artist interpretations are given back to the children in the hope they will recognise the power of their own imagination and to encourage them to pursue their creative potential.

We’ve picked out 10 of our favourites. This monster interpretation is by Riccardo Zema.

The project is run by a small group of volunteers, who believe children are missing opportunities to explore a creative career. By collaborating with the kids the project hopes to inspire, as well as letting the artists take a refreshing opportunity into a child’s creative mind.
