A FAMILY OF WHALES MURAL
Nautical was the theme for Dennis and Heather’s new baby boys room and I was helping them get it ready. Heather was looking specificly for 3 whales, a mamma, papa and baby together. She liked my style, something fun and cartoony. She wanted the whales monochromatic and she choose a bright beautiful blue.
I designed baby’s tale to look like a mini version of papa, while keeping mamas tale more flowery
We agreed on more modern looking simple waves to balance out the cartoon feel and tie it all in to the décor.
At one point I asked heather about their daughter Chloe, teasing her that she was not represented as a whale too, she said, she has her own mural! Which was true! Something special done individually for each of their kids to show their love.
Heather! I said, after seeing the room put together, I could have drawn those whales to match any of the ones on your bedding or pictures. I was bummed I didn’t have them to reference for her, but she and Dennis were really happy with how their unique custom design, making them more special to their family.
