Happy 2014 everyone. First accomplishment of the new year: my first baby mural! This was for the Downtown Artwalk in Santa Ana. I didn't have anything to sell but I displayed some sketchbooks and offered free coffee, you know, to reinforce the whole thing.

The process took me about 5 days, half of prepping the wall and getting the sketch down. The other half was painting the damn thing.  It's been way too long since I've done big work (come to think of it. last one I did was in college and was of a skeleton rocking out with an Explorer...) so I asked around for some tips and people mentioned getting a projector. I was lucky enough to find an overhead projector for dirt cheap which made the whole process ridiculously easy. Just trace and apply paint.

Thanks Konsept for having me show at the event. Also thank you everyone who took the time to look at my stuff and talk to me. I really appreciate it!
