Chicago Lighthouse Clocks in Target Stores!

Wow so much excitement last week.  Two of the illustrated scenes that I created for Larry Broutman's upcoming Chicago Treasure book project were turned into clocks as part of a new line of Chicago Lighthouse fashion clocks now available at select Targets!

I knew they were considering a few illustrations to feature on the clocks as I had to go in and make some adjustments to the artwork in order to make key elements fit properly into a round clock face. 

Here you can see the original art - along the the revised art that was used for the clocks.

So I knew clocks were in the works but I had no idea they would be going into Target and certainly that they were already in stores!

I first found out the clocks were in stores when I saw this article being shared online:

 n a Wheaton Target store, Pam Tully, the chief operating officer for The Chicago Lighthouse, shows off a new collection of clocks made by employees who are blind or visually impaired.

Pam is holding up one of the clocks with my illustration (Pinocchio) and the other one is the Woman Who Lived In A Shoe up on the top shelf middle.   When I saw this I nearly jumped out of my skin with excitement that my work was now featured on products at Target!

Then there was this featured story on the Fox 32 Chicago news where once again you will see those clocks with my art on the table in front of the ladies during the interview.

So of course I had to take a trip out to the Wheaton Target myself!

Being a part of something so wonderful has been such an amazing experience.  I feel very fortunate and know how lucky I am! 

I thank Larry Broutman, The Chicago Lighthouse and Target for this incredible opportunity!
