Patrick Hruby fans listen up. Patrick is back at Blik with the Imaginary Forest wall decal. We recently sat down with the LA-based illustrator for a quick conversation about the new graphic, growing up in a log cabin and his heroes. Like Imaginary Castle, the graphic is available in two sizes: small and large.
Blik: What inspired Imaginary Forest?
Patrick Hruby: I was born in Los Angeles, but I grew up in a log cabin on 20 acres of forest in Idaho. I did the forest scene for myself originally. It was self-medicating.
Blik: Why a forest?
PH: Drawing forests is peaceful for me. It’s one of the last places that’s still magical, beautiful and wild.
Thanks, Patrick for sharing with us!
