I’m so excited to have been a part of this year’s Monster Project. The idea of the project is to inspire creativity in kids by taking their monster drawings and handing them to designers to see how they translate those ideas. The monster I was paired with with so amazing in it’s original form. It was a lot of fun to expand on it and come up with some special powers for what I called The Monster Surrogate.
Peep my interpretation and its list of specs below, and be sure to check out the full monster gallery here!
MONSTER SURROGATE | German-engineered*
BANANA FUEL | For efficiency
TELEPATHIC ARMS | Located on the head, these retractable arms help with quick motion and for grabbing distant space bananas.
FRIEND HANDS | Smaller gloves are controlled directly with operator hands, for meeting and shaking hands with other monster surrogates.
BREAD SHIELD | Built-in protective regenerative bread shield to distract hungry enemies
WINGS | For steering. Can also be frozen and consumed as popsicles
* this detail was inspired by the German flag coloration of the background, as well as by the attention to detail in the suit’s design
