Monterey Bay Aquarium Illustration Job!!

So I was contacted a couple weeks ago by the web team at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. They'd seen my work on the kid's menus in the restaurant there and wanted to gauge my interest about some possible illustration work for them. Apparently kid's visiting the MBA website can download and print coloring pages at home. I jumped at the chance and signed a contract for 6 pages to replace some of the more dated ones that exist already. I submitted some of my sketches already and they received good reviews from the web team and now are being checked for accuracy by the husbandry department. Here are some of the sketches I did for the sunfish and great white shark.

Finished! mostly..

So I finished my niece's mural and it's pretty sweet. I understand she looks at it constantly and I think that is awesome. I hope it lasts a long time but who knows with kids, right?. I loved doing it and would be happy to do it again for anyone interested and within a 150 mile radius of where I reside.
