GIVE by the POUND!

So,

I had a partial day at work today. We had this (GREY GIVES) community works function planned through the agency to beautify the southern end of HIGHBRIDGE PARK. Some weeks back I'd submitted a few mural ideas for this project. I'd heard a few of them where selected. But, I didn't know this was happening with them.
1,900-FOOT CANVAS!!
Three murals I submitted wound up being selected for as a repeated pattern down a stretch of the high bridge bike path (photos to come).. More astounding then this was that I saw my name in the NY Times (blush). Other then that I was doing some murals that where presented to a local public school show below.


Even Weirder still is that the Shirt I am wearing in that photo won me a little prize for best shirt design of the day. Too Bad your too far away to see. I will share it on down the road. I wanna try to make another one first.

I coulda' spent all day on these murals but, am exceedingly thankful that I had all the assistance from team #16 to crank them out in a little under 3 hours. I will post up the original images I submitted for the mural judgings tomorrow, along with a few others that didn't make the cut.

In the end I painted, chatted up some of my friendly co-workers, publicly danced like a fool, won a t-shirt design contest, and planted small bushes in the occasional patch of poison ivy..all while almost falling down a hill..... It was an awesome day.

Hope your all well,

Thanks for checking in...I promise more art in the next post.

You are some kind of god king!

Really though - what a delight to have your work displayed in public, and big too!
