This is the progress on the first of the murals. Things have come together really fast and I think they look really good. We are filming the whole process to make a video in high speed. It should look great.

We began the commons murals. They are going to look pretty good. I am pretty happy with how they look like so far. Here is a video of us painting:

My new clothing website has just gone online. It features a ton of stencil art designs that I have created and the clothing choices are amazing. The site is on: http://www.cafepress.com/vsten
If you have any comments on images or stencils you would like to see on the site please let know. New stencils will be loaded soon. Thank you for all of your support. Also a special thanks for Olivia for all her help.
Here is some new worrk that not many people will see. I work for the MRC aka Media Resource Center. The people who work there are incredible and they have done a lot for me. The first two images are from a showcase which has old media equipment. The last two pictures are from Shawn’s office. He wanted something on his wall other than posters and we came up with that idea.
You can see all of the old equipment. I used a lot of marker and chalk designs but the chalk designs are not picked up well with a camera. Overall it looks a lot nicer than it did before.
For this project I did most of the images using a projector and black markers to do the actual scenes. Later I taped off the sections so it would look like a filmstrip. The movie scenes are go in this order: Animal House, The Godfather, Casablanca, Pulp Fiction, Caddyshack, Goodfellas, Citizen Kane, and Reservoir Dogs. There are sections that need to be finished and cleaned up but that will be in the next couple of days.
Here are some of my sketches and designs for the mural we will be painting in The Commons. The project was proposed to me by Drew. I was just sitting at a meeting and someone was like we are going to commision you to paint these dividers in the dining room of the school. Later it was written in the school paper and it was official. I will be keeping you updated on the progress of the wall as much as a I can. Should take about three weeks.
This piece will be a tribute to Ble Le Rat who I met in Paris. He is one of the pioneers in stencil art and is an amazing stencil artist. Google his name.
