I had the pleasure of meeting Rachel from Raspberry Kidz when I stumbled onto her blog and entered one of her contests. She turns kids artwork into computer generated art including some three dimensional effects by "raising" parts of the drawing.
"I love kids' art! It inspires me and makes me happy. I love to create original works of art based on children's doodles. Once they see their ideas presented in a color, matted professional manner, this will hopefully inspire them to continue on with their artwork."
She is an incredible artist and I truly fell in love with her work. I didn't win the contest but I sent her an artwork done by my friend's daughter as a gift for her 5th birthday. Take a look at Abby's original artwork.
And the finished look after Rachel is done with it. ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL?!!!? The finished product is an 8x10 print surrounded by a black mat. Abby was so proud of it that she asked her parents to hang it up in her room where it is displayed today.
