The drawings for this book were created by artist Olalekan Jeyifous and are inspired by his aluminum mural installation "Canyon Dreamscape," a commission by the LA County Department of Arts and Culture for the Olive View Restorative Care Village in Sylmar, California. The artwork references the rolling landforms of the Wilson Canyon terrain, which provides the backdrop for the facility, as well as the nearby flora and fauna that populate the local environs.

Jeyifous’ interest in the immediate landscape and vegetation as a source of inspiration lies in the proven connections between nature and natural imagery, holistic health and well-being, and the efficacy of restorative spaces and pastoral landscapes to facilitate and encourage tranquility, inspiration, and mental wellness. An artwork that is at once familiar yet rendered in playfully abstracted organic forms offers the opportunity for discovery and delight.
