Louis Henry Mitchell was recently asked to draw Sesame Street Muppets on the chalkboard office walls of Sesame Workshop , the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street . On the Sesame Workshop’s blog , Mitchell talks about his creative process and gives a rare glimpse of the Workshop’s 8th floor New York City offices with images of him working on the chalk characters. So cool! As the drawing evolved, I began to realize what was unique about both the surface and the chalk. I could use the black wall to shape their smiling mouths and to make their eyes pop. It also created natural shadows in the characters’ fur, giving it an especially textured, vivid look.
