Some of the world’s most wonderfully strange works of art aren’t hanging on gallery walls — they’re stuck to the refrigerators of proud parents. Artist Dave DeVries knew this when he launched The Monster Engine, in which he creates realistic paintings based on children’s drawings. But actual kids will probably be more excited about Sunny Little Studio, a company run by a pair of friends that transforms their sketches into plush toys and pillows, which we discovered via Doodlers Anonymous. Their 3D reinterpretations of everything from penguins to smiling hot dogs capture the messy exuberance of the source material, resulting in toys that are charmingly childlike. See a selection of Sunny Little Studio’s creations after the jump, then visit their website to learn more about the company — or, you know, order us one of those purple robots.
