Here are some process pics from my Jacks mural, the last of my Indianapolis projects, which became a mixed media endeavor.
Because of the deteriorating condition of the wall, I had the jacks routed out of an aluminum coated plastic, which i painted with a high gloss sign paint, making the jacks stand out more and ensuring their longevity as the wall continues to deteriorate.
The shadows and the ball were painted directly on the wall to provide a satin contrast to the jacks.
My second mural in Indianapolis was of the paint-by-number variety. A dozen or so volunteers spent a morning painting in my design on this retaining wall at a local elementary school. And it only took one day to straighten out all their lines! In all honesty though, they did a terrific job.
The mural's design, to some extent, was at the mercy of the process and the location. Simply put, it's a little cheesier than I usually shoot for. Nonetheless, the powers that be all seemed thrilled with the results, titled 'Paper Seasons'.
