AC Moore Elementary Mural (In Progress)

I was invited to be the Artist-In-Residence this year for AC Moore Elementary. This includes a fun commission to create two 40+ feet murals for their school library. Each grade developed an idea for a character and I worked them into the overall design. There are also family of Bobcats (school mascot) hiding in the mural for the kids to find. I drew all the pictures by hand, scanned them, collaged them on the computer and redrew each mural using a Cintiq tablet. Color was added digitally. The final art will be printed and mounted on the library walls above the book shelves. In addition, we will be making stand alone cut outs of the different animals that will go around the school. Here are some images from the mural in progress. We hope to install and have an opening reception in December. Click on each image below.
