This year I participated in the annual Douglas Design District Avenue Art Days. Several businesses participate in having a local artist produce a mural for the side of their building. The mural I produced was featured on the side of a second hand consignment children's clothing store called Hannah Banana. I have never done an outdoor mural on site before. Needless to say it was a doozy. I ran into some pretty big issues right off the bat. The building had a very rough textural brick surface that made painting go at a snail's pace. Eventually I realized that spraypaint was going to be the way to go. Needless to my skills with the spraypaint are less than stellar, and a lot of my detail that I had originally planned got lost in the shuffle. But oh well, it got me out of work for a day, so that was well worth it. Here are some pictures of the 2 days I spent on this bad boy. As you can see I had some help getting this guy done.
