the idea

THE IDEA
My idea was to make an animal for each one of the 11 building and give them a different colour tone for the 2-4 entrances/building. Animals are motives easy to understand and appeal to all ages. I chose to depict Swedish wild animals to connect the art pieces with the surroundings. I sketched the motives in indian ink to make the animals simplified and easy to read.

Here you can see the 19 sketches I gave the board to chose between. Three of the animals come in two versions. Which 11 animals do you think they should chose? Or maybe easier; which ones shouldn't they take?

I really like the magpie (and I don't really like birds), and quite a few of the other ones (rabbits, bear, fox etc)..

I'm glad someone else has to choose, I wouldn't be able to!
