Ronald McDonald House Chicago Donor Wall: Two Pencils Door

Fifty years ago a little boy, named Harold, took a purple crayon and began drawing his own adventures. His imagination starts on a blank white page when he realizes he needs a moon for his walk in the moonlight. Thank you cartoonist, Cockett Johnson for creating “Harold and the Purple Crayon. ” You inspired me to create the “Two Pencils” door.

80 unique doors will be showcased on two gallery walls in the main public area of the Ronald McDonald House being built in the heart of downtown Chicago near Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. The doors are meant to symbolize the philosophy that ” The doors of Ronald McDonald House are always open for you.”  To learn more click on the following links:

Yes, the images are of various miniature doors that I’m creating for the RMH in Chicago. 80 in total will be created by May of 2012.
I take my inspiration from everywhere. But, I love children’s books and Harold and the Purple Crayon is just one of those timeless, creatively simple concepts, illustrated beautifully.

So Chris, are each of these elements that you’ve posted part of the wall???

Love that you are looking to classic children’s books for inspiration.
