Fan Art: Baby Lamb Creations & Friends

Date: 2020
Title/Subject: Neighborhood Celebration
Artist: Baby Lamb Creations and Friends


According to Baby Lamb Creations:

[This is] a very special piece of Neighborhood fanart that is made not just by me, but also by the effort of several friends I know online that took the time to put together a big collaborative art piece celebrating "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" and its great history. It features almost every single notable character from the program, both from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe and outside of it. I even included Johnny Costa as well as the Neighborhood Trolley.

From left to right in the first row: Robert Troll, Marilyn Barnett, Betty Aberlin, Chuck Aber, Donkey Hodie, Purple Panda, Harriet Elizabeth Cow, Cornflake S. Pecially, John Reardon, Bob Dog, Bob Trow, Chef Brockett

From left to right in the second row: James Michael Jones, Betty Okonak Templeton, Audrey Roth, Francois Clemmons, Joe Negri, Mr. McFeely, Mrs. McFeely, Maggie Stewart, Cousin Mary Owl, Edgar Cooke

From left to right in the bottom row: Elsie Jean Platypus, Ana Platypus, Dr. Bill Platypus, Prince Tuesday, King Friday XIII, Queen Sara Saturday, Daniel Striped Tiger, Grandpere Tiger, Lady Elaine, Collette Tiger, X the Owl, Henrietta Pussycat, Mrs. Frogg.

And of course the host and namesake of the program, Mister Rogers, at the center.

I was heavily inspired by the final episode of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Episode 1765, where Mister Rogers showed different artists drawing the Trolley and showing how each one is different but they are all drawing the same thing. I wanted to do the same and have different artists I know, both young and old, draw the characters from the show and demonstrate how all the styles are different but they're all from the same show.
