It's like something straight out of an R.L. Stine nightmare.  Eleven years ago Dave Devries started the "Monster Engine" project which addressed one single question: What would a child’s drawing look like if it were painted 'realistically'? This month, Dave’s art is being celebrated at the INDYINK gallery where dozens of artists are putting their own takes on children’s sketches. "The process is simple. I project a child’s drawing with an opaque projector, faithfully tracing each line. Applying a combination of logic and instinct, I then paint the image as realistically as I can. My medium is mixed—primarily acrylic, airbrush, and colored pencil." Look for those photos next week. Many more photos can be found here.
