I was lucky enough to be invited to participate in The Monster Project again this year. The Monster Project was started by designer, fellow UNT alum, and all around cool person: Katie Johnson. The goal of the project is pure and simple: “Help children recognize the power of their own imaginations and encourage them to pursue their creative potential.”
Elementary students in the Austin and Dallas area were asked to submit their monster doodles. These doodles were then distributed amongst a group of passionate and skilled creatives (over 100 this year!) to reinterpret. The results as usual were great and diverse.
I took the opportunity this year to take a step out of my comfort zone and wander aimlessly into the world of 3D. The process was challenging, to say the least. Most of my time was spent starting over trying to figure out how I broke my model. I’m happy the monster turned out alright in the end—and that I didn’t loose my mind in the process.
I think she looks pretty happy with it!
