The latest art trend transforms kids' art into real objects.
Maddox Jolie-Pitt is like most 6-year-old boys. He likes to draw guns. But unlike most little boys, his mom wears a representation of one of his gun drawings as a gold charm around her neck. Jolie tells Entertainment Weekly "Mad, our 6-year-old, drew a machine gun, and Brad had it made into a necklace, which is really sweet. It's really cute. I think it's really good!''
It's actually the latest trend in kid art: transforming childlike scribbles into toys, stuffed animals or in Angelina's case, a solid-gold gun.
Toy companies are taking note of the desire to transform kids' art into tangible toys. FAO Schwarz offers something called Make-My-Own-Monster Kit, which allows kid to create a monster based on their own drawing. Another company, Stuff Your Doodles, has a green angle, creating the stuffed toys with recycled materials.
And if you've ever wondered what kids art would look like drawn in a realistic style, a new book called The Monster Engine by artist Dave Devries takes reinterpreting a child's drawing to a new level -- recreating them as hyper-realistic paintings.
