This project for Children's Hospital was for a reading nook for young patients. Two large posters were created with an educational yet fun focus.
The client's goal of educational material combined with a light atmosphere was realized via the creation animal themed letters and numbers delivering the complete alphabet and counting numbers. The use of animal names corresponding to each letter and animals and objects for each counting number was essential to the design integration. At the client's request, some decorative elements were incorporated into the overall design as well.
The client had experience with other alphabet posters but desired a unique design combined with the client specified color palette. From this starting point, I created hand drawn animals and used digital techniques to assemble and color the final artwork which was then printed on fine art paper by Skyline Art Services for the installation.
Working on final art digitally allowed me to fine tune the colors of the piece. The colors can also be easily modified later for Skyline Art Services to use in a different project, if required.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
