I've been asked last September, to create 2 Winnie the Pooh illustrations for Ashley Simpson and Pete Wentz baby nursery walls.
I really wanted to keep the charm of the original late 60's/early 70's Winnie the Pooh featurettes, as I always do at work when I draw them, and get this kind of animation cel on a background feel to it. Storytelling was crucial too, I didn't want to just slap some big characters on their walls like stickers.
The first wall below is the one overlooking the baby crib, so I chose to make it an indoor scene. I drew Winnie and Piglet reading a story just right where the crib was meant to be. Eeyore's tail was removable, and Winnie, Piglet and Eeyore were printed on a board and cut out, as well as Tigger and Roo below.
The second one was a wall next to big windows and trees outside, so I designed an outdoor scene, using some colors from the garden to get a sense of space and continuity.
The chalkboard in the middle was made out of real chalkboard material, so their son can draw on it.
