I have worked on 11 panel mural project with “amazing and talented” Stefan Sagmeister for past five months or so. The project was finally completed last week, but it will be a while till I can actually show the panels in public. The murals will be in a public school library in The Bronx, New York next year through Robin Hood Foundation and Pentagram.

Big thank you goes to Stefan for giving me an amazing copy to work with, great art direction, helping me with type solutions, and most of all, not giving up on me during this long process. Also, thank you Pentagram, especially Josh, for letting me work in their office to finish up the panels.
