Here is the final post chronicling the mural. Brooke Kupcho captured some shots of the finished mural at the opening party for the shop. I hope you enjoy the photos and I encourage you to stop by the store to check it out in person. The hand-lettering is original and designed by myself with the help of Sam Gunderson.

Mural Part One

I was asked to do a mural installation in the Others Shop downtown Fargo to help welcome people into the door. This is my first post showing you the very beginning of the process. This awe inspiring blank wall is a whopping 8×32′ big!  I’ve done some mural work before but this was the largest canvas I’ve ever had. I decided I didn’t want to do this one solo and so I convinced my artist friend Sam Gunderson to collaborate. And thank goodness I did. Not only did he bring another valuable perspective – he also brought an old projector. This project would have been infinitely more difficult without that lovely old projector. If you ever see one snatch it up – it’s gold, simply gold, my friends! In this post you can see the lines beginning to come together on the wall in pencil. This script font was entirely hand rendered and designed by yours truly. Stay tuned for more!

Highlights from Kegs & Canvas at Fowlers Heritage Company

Surrounded by adorable clothing, sipping a caramel latte from Stumbeanos, and playing with watercolors. I had the opportunity to meet and greet many of the people coming through – one of them was new to the area and looking to get into the art scene, another went through the Graphic Design & Communications programs at BSC and had heard about my work through one of my professors, friends and family stopped by to share smiles and hugs, and others were mostly there for the hard cider. Fowlers was a fun location to draw, the ambiance was great and the company was even better.
