Making New Murals in St. Paul

I’m working on FOUR new big murals for the Creative Lighting building in St. Paul, MN near 94 & Snelling. All four are still in progress, but here are some preview pics of the first mural. This one, measuring 15′ tall by 65′ wide, is a collaborative piece with Twin Cities’ poster artist and bicycle evangelist Adam Turman, one of my local art heros. He made the design and painted the lady. I made the Drunk Cowboy font and am still working on painting drop-shadows on that. We had lots of friends come out to help, too. Painting is fun. Thanks y’all!

Painting continues on this mural and the other three next week. Extra special thanks to John Wallace who came out to take these “real photographer” pictures of the painting event. For press and media inquiries into this project, please contact JudyJudyJudy.
