The Lorax is Done!

Hooray--the Lorax is done! It took a few weeks from start to finish, but I think it turned out pretty well. Below is a sequence of fotos from start to finish:

Here are the finished mural and the cover of the original book for comparison. Not bad, eh? I decided to not outline the letters "Lorax" and "Dr. Seuss," but endeavored to paint the remainder.

Now Dominic and Patrick's room has murals of The Lorax and The Giving Tree on opposite walls. I like to think that this places them between conservation and forest science, a pleasant place to lay their heads every night!

That is one great wall. Very nice job Mike. The hard work really paid off. The colors are great and everything is where it is supposed to be from the book.

Wow!! You did a super job, Mike. A masterpiece. I love it. You could do things like that on canvas and sell them. Many beloved book covers that folks would want for kids room...Hungry Caterpillar, Little House, Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel, etc. Well done. Love, Audra
