Library Mural

JUNE 18, 2008
Last summer, my wife and I took our then 3-year-old to The Tricycle Music Fest here in Charlotte. It's now become an annual festival hosted by the Charlotte Public Library. We saw some great children's rock bands, The Jellydots, Lunch Money, and Dan Zanes. After one of the shows I spoke to the Director of Youth Services about using me for any illustration projects the library might have. He called back about a week later and wanted to know if I'd be interested in creating a mural for one of the branch's children's section. I said heck yes and year later it's up!

BTW, Last year's Tricycle Music Fest bore even more fruit. I contacted The Jellydots and Lunch Money, both of which I've since then illustrated for.
