The trunk is designed after mo’s  which was inherited from her grandmother when she was a little girl . . . yes it is blue !!  mo has a large collection of teddy bears, well for the average person that is.  The telephone is styled after the first phone mo bought, french style phone.  It was retro back then now it’s letting the kids know what phones use to be like.  And of course mo’s was not as extravagant.


This was mo’s first illustration using a spotlight and a round stage.  She loved the outcome and it was on display in the mfa department for a semester at her school.
