The Fabulous Fish Fridge

This was a pseudo-commission I did for my college roommate and her husband. They had just bought a tiny house for their growing family and there was this spare refridgerator out on the patio. It was a weird pattern of red, green and blue, like someone had used up a bunch of spray paint cans on it. They bought the materials and I donated the labor in exchange for room and board at their house to work on it. They had a great book on coral reef fish, and we just sat down and went through the book. It was easy to decide on fish and plants that we both liked, and I just improvised it from there.
