Over the last few years Peter Grosshauser has illustrated many doodle, maze, & puzzle books for children. This is a recent one that was completed for Publications International. It’s a Doodles to Go! book for kids that contains well over one hundred illustrations and is chock full of doodle projects for children to complete. They can sketch, use grids to copy drawings, make sticker designs, and use all kinds of fun supplies to create their own doodles. Enclosed are two pages from the book using Peter’s fun and zany characters!
During the past year Petter Grosshauser created numerous illustrations for Puzzlemania Magazine – a creation of Highlights For Children. Each magazine contained chances to solve puzzles, navigate mazes, and find hidden pictures among many activities for young children. Peter created “hidden picture” illustrations where kids would look for hidden objects, items that should not be in the scene, etc. These are a few of the illustrations that appeared in the various issues.

We were approached by the Central Lutheran Church of Minneapolis, MN concerning a very exciting mural project. Peter Grosshauser had illustrated a beautiful bible story book for young children for Augsburg Fortress Publishers and the church wanted a mural created in the same art style that would be exciting for children to view. The theme would be the Old Testament. The wall space for the mural would be 56 feet in length by roughly 8 feet high! We explained to the client that it would be impossible to paint the mural on site due to the sheer size, amount of time to complete, travel restrictions, cost, etc. Peter came up with a great idea of illustrating the mural digitally in three sections after approval of sketches.
Peter then sent the digital files to a supplier in California who printed the art on flexible canvas. The “rolled-up” canvas panels were shipped to our client and they mounted all three on frames and secured them to the wall. They were delighted with the end result – a great solution for the project! Enclosed is a picture of the mounted murals that was sent to us – not a great picture but at least you get an idea of the sheer size!
