Bacteria fun!

These character designs were developed for the LOTT Alliance in Olympia as part of a series of illustrations created for their new learning center scheduled to open Spring 2010. LOTT is a massive wastewater management facility that serves Lacey, Olympia, Tumwater and Thurston County.
The charicatures needed to be based on the real-life appearance of each micro-organism. A nearby microscope will allow kids to see the actual organisms up close.

This is one of four exhibits I was contracted to illustrate through Aldrich Pears Associates in Vancouver, B.C..
