While going through Susan's files today we found an image of this mural she had painted for a children's hospital. It incorporates a teddy bear character that an artist friend of hers had created.
Here's the original sketch they started with; notice how the original 'sporty bear' morphed into a space age bear. It went with the times and the interest in the NASA space program in the late '80s - but it really turned out to be a client favorite. Looking for design inspiration can be as simple as a revisiting a childhood friend. We think both pictures are adorable!
