Andrew recently completed a commissioned wall mural for Girl’s Inc. with theme being the “Very Hungry Caterpillar” based on the children book authored by Eric Cale. The design includes elements of science facts related to the life cycle of a caterpillar to a butterfly. Science facts highlighted within the mural include the following stages of the life cycle: egg, larva, (Caterpillar), pupa (chrysalis), and butterfly. Additionally, the mural has an eclectic and diverse theme encompassing acceptance of and unity with racial equality. This theme is brushed into the mural with both the English and Spanish translation for “Spread your wings and fly” “Abre tus alas y vuela” This theme is bordering the edges of the mural at the beginning and end.
