A satellite view of my giant cupcake.
The Cupcake Boy school photo preparation. I used a satellite photo from Google Maps to estimate the size and placement. Then I overlay a grid and picture of a cupcake. When I get to the school, the first thing I do is pace out the grid.

Making of the Cupcake Boy School Photo

I think this is a beautiful picture even though it didn’t turn out as I imagined. The photo was taken on St. Patrick’s Day when all the kids were wearing green. I asked everyone with a red coat to be part of the cherry. I also didn’t account for perspective, which makes the muffin top look too small. Below you can see my preparatory drawing using a satellite image of the playground and a cupcake illustration, which I then transferred to the school playground using chalk and a grid pattern.
