George F Baker III
Be Playful


Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
Mailchimp commissioned me and 5 Atlanta artists to create Zoom Backgrounds of their most ideal creative workstations. I try to keep a childlike energy in all I do. So I put together what my personal home “playground” would look like. I made a room full of sentimental things and tools to create something new that sparks joy.

How was the illustration used:
The Illustration was used as a Zoom Background that was given to HOW Conference participants.

How did you make this work:
I was utilized a large amount of my personal studio objects as subjects during my sketch sessions and then reorganized them in Illustrator. I tried to channel my inner Interior Designer to make a room brimming with play.
