Monsters in the Closet

Dave Devries gets paid to draws monsters. A New jersey native, Devries takes children's drawings and recreates them into wonderful, spooky, detailed Illustrations fit for a comic book or a cartoon movie. Dave's inspiration comes from his 7 year old niece, Jessica, "I painted monsters for Universal Studios-but these monsters weren't as cool as the ones I saw lurking in my niece's sketches. Her drawings were unselfconscious and possessed an intuitive understanding of the creative process." I love these for a few reasons: the pure fun and detail of the drawings and how these could work on so many levels for children's development. It could be a great way to help a child overcome their fear of the dark or a monster in the closet.••••
