Crayon Creatures is a service to turn children’s drawings into figurines; nice looking designer objects to decorate the home and office with a colorful touch of wild creativity. (http://crayoncreatures.com/about/)
Crayon Creatures creates 3D printed sculptures from the drawings for children. There are a few similar projects going around (such as the one turning children’s drawings into plushes, and the other which is drawing children’s drawing realistically, which I covered in my critical journal previously called Monster Engine.)
Children drawings are weird and beautiful. Kids produce an immense amount of drawings that populate fridges, living rooms and workspaces of parents, family & friends. Those drawings are amazing, we love them. (http://crayoncreatures.com/about/)
The creatures are meant to be given as gifts or displayed anywhere you wish but not to give to the child who drew the picture. The fun comes from seeing how these strange children’s drawings are turned into 3D pieces. An artist from crayon creatures builds a model in 3d modelling software and then 3d prints it to create an in real life version of any children’s drawing you chose.
I think these sculptures offer a look into a child’s mind, but also are very cool because of the process the artist must take to try and imagine what the child was seeing at the time, or what their hands were trying to get down on paper.
