While visiting my sister's new apartment, she and her roommates commissioned me to paint some murals for them! My sister is a crafty lady, so I had to do her room justice. After much brainstorming, this is what I came up with:


Whales, squid, birds, antlers, and epic adventures!

Since I didn't want to spend forever making murals while visiting, I did everything with a black Montana Hardcore paint pen-- which I am now addicted to! It made everything so easy. For the little details, I used a paint brush and a permanent Staedtler pen.
