So when they asked if I knew anyone who could do a mural in the children's dermatology suite I volunteered myself and Mum. I felt quite apprehensive in the run-up as I'm used to drawing animals thumb-sized rather than giant, but we ended up having a GREAT weekend, and think the paintings have brightened up the children's cubicle. We hope the staff at Queen Mary's will agree!
What ho! What would brighten this slightly clinical (though excellent-care-involving!) room up?
Our brief: Do something that goes with these curtains.
Mural Painting Team! (Mum and Tor)
Ingredients for fun.
But what shall we do first?
Let's get cracking with this parrot!
And a monkey!
Pensive by the giraffe.
What's that monkey doing with that banana??
End of the first day.
Back again - renewed vigour!
Tortoise and baby.
Tortoise details going on.
What has that parrot got his eye on?
We took photos of all the areas...
The banana was not a great success.
Watch out caterpillar!

Mum's gorgeous ladybird family.
Waving not drowning.
All done - and it looks like they're waving goodbye to us!
But it's taken a toll on the exhausted muralists. Off to the pub!
