With only a short interview over the phone, Emily Deruy of the La Jolla Light wrote a very nice brief article about our new Murals at Rady Children's MRI Center. See all the images in my two last blog entries. Here's a link to the article. http://www.lajollalight.com/2011/07/05/artists-commissioned-to-add-‘fun’-to-mri-room-at-children’s-hospital/

|The Waiting Room Mural 4'x8'|
With more than 20 years of experience at Sharp and Children's MRI center, Keith Prince, CEO of the department, decided to put child anxiety on the run by transforming his new MRI center into a kid friendly zone.
Based on a recommendation by the art coordinator at Rady Children's Hospital, Janis, (posted one blog ago), Keith called me to see if I would design two undersea cartoon style murals for the MRI room and waiting room. He also wanted about 30 individual cartoon vignettes to be placed anywhere children might look. This was a rewarding project. Stephanie Goldman (wife/mural partner) and I completed the project in 8 days - 3 days before their deadline.
The MRI Mural is 9 feet x 19 feet; the Waiting Room Mural is 4 feet x 8 feet. The Vignettes are about 2 feet square except for 4 smaller Vignettes painted directly on the MRI Machine. Everything was painted with Acrylics. We have heard the kids love the images and make up stories about the various sea critters. Here they are:

Here are several views of a 10' x 28' mural (Kite Flyers at Mission Bay) just completed for the intensive neonatal care unit at Rady Children's Hospital.See CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL UPLIFT (2 posts down -Feb. 28 -'10) for full story of wall-covering designs.
The vinyl wall-coverings below are enlarged 6 times from the original watercolors and then applied as wall paper in patient rooms and corridors.
Each floor has a different theme:
SEASHORE AND TIDE-POOLS, 2nd floor
SUN, CLOUDS AND SKY, 3rd floor
OUTER SPACE, 4th floor
