When my wife and I decided to have a baby (a little girl due in August), I knew I had to do something special to decorate the nursery.

That’s why I put together this 5’X3.5′ mural populated with fantasy and children’s book characters. I’ll be filling in the correct constellation and poster on the door in the mirror, depending on when her birth sign is.

The medium is acrylic on canvass, which I tacked to the wall. I drew the sketch at about 1/8th scale, scanned it into the comupter and manipulated it so it was abou 4″X6″, and I then used an opague projector to throw it up on the wall and trace the lines.

See how many characters you recognize!
