“Since I hadn’t done a lot of large scale pieces, my intention from the beginning was to make the final mural look like one of the animation-cell-style drawings of mine that I have been doing recently, just….a lot bigger,” Pardee wrote in a blog entry. “That [meant] that I would be creating bigger shapes, and most importantly, creating thicker line-work than normal due to the scale.” (photo by Kwai Chan / Meniscus Magazine)
