Artists take on the Imagination of Children

February 18, 2007

Original Drawing

DrawerGeeks is a collaborative of drawers, animators and illustrators. Every other week they all draw their own versions of a chosen fictional character. Usually the subjects are comic book heroes, but in November they reworked drawings made by children. The artists tried to stay true to the children’s original intentions and ended up with some amazing results.

Here are my favorites.

I think it would be an amazing experiment to adapt children’s visions in other ways. A film based off of a child’s imagination before he or she is exposed to the typical narrative conventions would probably result in a very different type of storytelling.
