Kalahari Resorts, Wisconsin Dells and Sandusky, Ohio
When the Kalahari Resort asked me to give the lobby walls of the Ivory Coast a facelift, this is one of the pictures I painted on canvas. The original is 2'x3'. It was scanned . . .
And then the images were digitally-manipulated to create panels like these. The white squares represent windows.
of many of the images appearing throughout the panels.
The panels were printed as wallpaper and applied to the walls.
Here is a picture BEFORE . . .
Another project in the lobby of the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells is a combination of wallpaper and carved 3-dimensional foam
Here is a before shot
And the After I designed and painted the wallpaper completely in photoshop, using close-up textural photos to add depth and interest to the painted items.
You can see the dimensionality of the huts in this photo.
The Great Karoo Restaurant at the Kalahari Resort was redesigned to attract family and kids and this mural is at the heart of the redesign, The white paper surrounding the mural features a description of the desert land known as the Great Karoo in Africa and it's history. Children can often be seen sitting on the bench underneath and reading about the Great Karoo while families wait for a table.
