I was asked to make a "quick little something" for a playroom that was being redesigned by HGTV's Bob and Courtney Novogratz, for an upcoming episode of their show Home By Novogratz. (Tune in later this fall to see it on the air!)
I didn't have a lot of time, but I was told the kids like Pandas and that the designers wanted something bold and graphical. And a little 3D. So, I present to you: "Mr. Pandaface". Hello, Mr Pandaface. You have quite a panda looking face there.
This is a slightly relieved mosaic; his face has a little bit of contouring and depth, just a few bricks, but enough to give a bit more shape to the face while still keeping it lightweight (for hanging on the wall) and classically simple-looking.
As always, my mosaics are hand-drawn (not computer-generated) and are often very cuddly looking.
