The Monster Buddy Project invited schools and aspiring artists to submit drawings of imaginary friends. Over 100 entries were collected and among those, 15 of the most creative were selected to be the inspiration for a series of scratchboard drawings. The project explores the surprising inventiveness of young minds and encourages the pursuit of originality and whimsy in the visual arts. The collection of scratchboards and student artwork was displayed at Queen Bean Caffè in Yucaipa from December 5 through December 18.
