Dave Devries created these monsters on the canvas. His art started from monsters' sketches drawn by children based on their imagination. Later Dave used brush and colors to bring those monster near to reality. Titled as “The Monster Engine" his 48-pages book is famous in children.
Dave Devries describes:
It began at the Jersey Shore in 1998, where my niece Jessica often filled my sketchbook with doodles. While I stared at them, I wondered if color, texture and shading could be applied for a 3D effect. As a painter, I made cartoons look three dimensional every day for the likes of Marvel and DC comics, so why couldn’t I apply those same techniques to a kid’s drawing? That was it... no research, no years of toil, just the curiosity of seeing Jessica’s drawings come to life.
