Clear back in March 2016, I was approached on Facebook to discover a big fan of mine passed away.  The man is a big fan of MLP and one of my illustrations was his all time favorites.  The TCI company he worked for knew what he loved, and approached me asking permission to use one of my illustrations.  Their goal was to decorate one of the rooms in honor of their colleague and friend. Needless to say I was honored.  After some discussions back and forth I was able to get them a high resolution version of the artwork, and even updated some areas to improve its visual appeal. This wasn't completed until Bronycon 2016.

I didn't hear back from my contact in Facebook until sometime later. The room was completed around December 2016 due to materials not sticking to the wall appropriately.  The results looks amazing, and definitely is a great commemoration to the late colleague and mlp fan.  Besides the wall size illustration, they also included a design on the glass that shows silhouettes of ponies.

Once again, I'm honored to have been approached and had the opportunity to help out. May he rest in peace, and those dear to him heal and keep him close in memory.

(Small update, his name is Brian.)

They made a really good choice with this specific work of art. It is very serene and calming and reflects the feeling of peace that I, personally, connect with death. Thank you for working with them to make this memorial possible.

It's one thing to be amazed by your work, but to hear that your late fan Brian's fellow colleagues came to you to ask you for one of your works to be dedicated as a memorial to him is very touching. I think if Brian was still among us, he would be very touch to see this. May his kind spirit rest in peace.

There are some very cool people that work at that company.  It makes me want to work there because those people must have good hearts to make meaningful personal connections at work.
