“What would a child’s drawing look like if it were painted realistically?” That’s the question artist David Devries asked himself.
As the artist describes the work:
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.
