When the development director for Dane County Humane Society (DCHS), Amy Good, asked me to create two murals for their Wildlife Center, I immediately said yes. DCHS is an independent, non-profit, animal welfare organization. It is not funded by the county, city or the state other than a small fee for taking in strays from Madison’s Animal Control department. It is an organization near and dear to my heart.

I did these documents in Adobe Illustrator, creating the animals first and then placing them into the bigger environment. I used a variety of paint brushes to create the effect of feathers, fur and other textures.
