The Monster Project is a program that matches artists to kids who make up monsters, culminating in a massive exhibition at their school where the kids meet their monsters for the first time, and the artist meet the little monsters that made them up for the first time.

I had the pleasure of illustrating 9-years-old Masha's monster 'Rekrest' (or Freddy). 
Masha's creation was so terrifying that attempting to outdo her could have potentially result in the degradation of my mind and soul.
After many sleepless nights I decided to go in a different much more gentle direction.
When I finally met Masha I did not know what dark creature to expect, but surly not the shy, fun, little monster that she was.
Although my soul can finally rest, it will never be the same again.

Love your art, love the concept, love the project and love the story!

How beautiful and rewarding is that? I wish something like that could be done at my school!

Make it happen! This all happened thanks to one teacher's initiative.
