I Drew 300 Monsters Over The Last 2 Years Based On Kid Drawings, And Here are The Results (New Pics)

For the past two years, I have been inviting kids all around the state of Michigan to send me monster designs. I four simple shape promptings for them to build their monsters off of. To date, over 17,000 drawings have been submitted. For my process, I look through all the entries and pick out designs that inspire me. I then work up fully rendered pieces of “fan art” based on their amazing designs in colored pencil, with the same techniques I use when illustrating picture books.

The collection is on display for ArtPrize 2018 in Grand Rapids, Michigan outside the Children’s Museum. Throughout the 19 days of ArtPrize, kids can continue to submit designs and I will illustrate new fan art monsters LIVE on-site. The results will be added daily to the growing collection and by the end of ArtPrize I will have finished 300 pieces of Monster Art.

I shared some of these monsters in a previous Bored Panda post and thought I would add a few more.
