Imaginawesome, brainchild of Garrett Miller, 2006 Studio Art major from Oberlin College

Imaginawesome arose out of a Reddit thread several months ago. A high-quality painting by a 6-year-old prompted commenters to post their own kids’ art. Miller killed some time one night enhancing one of the pieces. The reaction provided just enough fuel to try it again, eventually leading to a website.
Miller, who doesn’t have kids of his own, has relied on extended networks and the Internet to find new material. “Kids have the ability to come up with some pretty amazing things, but not always the ability to draw exactly what they were imagining. I’m here to help make those drawings come a little bit closer to reality.”  Garrett Miller, a Washington, D.C. software engineer, is not a professional artist by trade, although he is one by training. He graduated from Oberlin College in 2006 as a studio art major before wending his way into a programming job further east.
Thus far, only a handful of artwork has been published. Each picture takes an hour or two, typically drawn on an old Wacom tablet.
If you have a drawing you’d like to share, please pass it along. He would love to make it awesome.
