Staying in a homeless shelter is no fun, especially for little kids. But a bright and sunny playroom can make it a little more comfortable, especially with Calvin
& Hobbes murals
on the walls
El Paso artist Sergio Rivas describes his freehand work on the donated murals for Reynolds Home
, a shelter for homeless women and children:
"Working on this mural, staring at every minute detail of Watterson's work, I gained a greater appreciation for his beautiful creations. I tried to respect the original works as much as possible, giving my full attention to even the smallest detail and trying to get the colors just right. Attempting to recreate the look of watercolors using only latex paint proved to be quite difficult. I hope I did 'em justice."
