Kids Artwork Perfected By Pros

Jill Harness

Ever wonder what would happen if a skilled artist took children's pictures and transformed them into realities? They have, and the results are fantastic. From professional comic artist Dave Devries' detailed paintings of children's monsters and superhero sketches detailed in his book Monster Engine to a school fundraiser that involved Anne Karsten making plushies from pictures drawn by 4th and 5th graders, these projects are both inspired and adorable.

The picture above shows the stuffed toy Silke Stoddard created based on her son's drawing.
