December Nights & R.H.Fleet Santa Clause Backdrop


December Nights & R.H.Fleet Santa Claus Backdrop

One of my favorite highlights from my Internship with Reuben H. Fleet Science Center was constructing this large backdrop for Santa Claus. December Nights in Balboa Park is one of San Diego’s biggest events, and it was an absolute honor to have my illustrations part of the festivities. Below was my initial sketch.


I remember management telling me that the final version of the design was due within a few hours and I was only halfway finished. I managed to complete the skyline in Adobe Illustrator at a frantic pace with only seconds to spare.


Four large panels were erected with overlapping seams and the result was the illusion of one massive piece.
