Flipping through images of your childhood art work can be nostalgic. I remember being super-proud of myself for simply being able to color within the lines (as you can probably guess, I did not excel in art class). You may have also noticed how the quality of your grade-school art homework gradually increased year by year. Such reflection reminds me of a simpler time. A time when I was tax-free and care-free. A time when all I had to worry about was what game I wanted to pop into my NES and play for the next 4 hours.
For some, nostalgic memories are simply not satisfactory enough. Take Telmo Pieper, for example. Telmo describes himself as a creator, imagemaker, drinker, and contemporary spraypainter. He was born in 1989 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Together with Miel Krutzmann, they form the artistic duo known as Telpo Meil. They showcase their amazing artwork on their Facebook page.
Instead of just reminiscing on his childhood art pieces, Telmo decided to recreate them.
They are absolutely incredible pieces, especially when you compare them to the original pieces and realize how much work Telmo put in to make his new pieces look like the originals.
Telmo describes his project as follows:
“Digital painted Creatures and stuff based on my own childhood drawings. I designed these creatures at the age of 4 and now reincarnated them with digital painting”.
Below are the 9 artwork pieces that he re-created and we’re pretty sure they will blow your mind.
