This was one of my favorite paintings that I did for Joe Murray when we were working on the development for Camp Lazlo. He told me to do whatever I wanted with his sketches. Joe and I were big fans and collectors of kitsch 50s furniture and fabrics. I picked up some great 50s fabric on our travels and decided to design the look around those patterns. The colors and graphics were very simple and beautiful. I thought a yellow sky would be great with the comical nature of the show, and give the backgrounds the look of vignettes similar to 50s graphics.
This was one of the BGs of Lumpus' cabin used for the pilot.
