Dave Devrie PaintingArtist Dave Devrie has an unusual sideline: Converting small children’s doodles into amazingly creepy oil paintings. There are several examples on his site, plus he’s published a book.

It’s surprising how evocative and disturbing the kids’ drawings become when translated into oils. Childishly out-of-scale proportions and missing features suddenly seem ominous and threatening.

I may never look at Shadowboy’s scribbles the same way again.
