D>O>D Celebration!!!

October 29, 2006

These are some pictures from the photo station table during the Day of the Dead celebration. It was a great event and I am glad that we get to have it every year. Casilda did a great job organizing everything and it turned out to be one of the biggest turnouts we have had in a long time. Great Job!!

This skull is based off Mike Giants’s designs.

Polaroids are amazing!!!
I love La Casa Latina.

Dia de Los Muertos!!! (aka Day Of The Dead)

October 28, 2006

This is a piece I did for the Day Of The Dead Celebration on Oct. 28th. It is about 8 feet high by 5 feet wide. Thanks to Tory for helping me paint. This actual piece is part of the photo station table which I will be running. I will be taking polaroids of people from 1-4pm. Thank you to Casilda for organizing a huge program. I will take pictures of the event and post them later. Enjoy

This is the back of the shirt for the Health Nuts, a group on campus that is part of the Wellness Program. Bright colors are my favorite.

4 MURALS DONE!!!

October 18, 2006

WOw. After a long day of painting all four walls are finally done. I am looking forward to the unveiling. I am proud to show people a part of me and a field in which I am extremely interested in. The actual speed of the project also makes me feel good as I was able to create four distinct murals without ever feeling overwhelmed. I don’t consider myself an artist. I am a stencilist. This project was another way of stretching my imagination and challenging myself to learn new techniques. The walls are an extension of what I am feeling and the experiences that I have been through. Since I can not speak to every person at Drew at one time I figure I can do it through images. People like pictures!!! Enjoy and thank you for all of your support.

Off to the next project. Not sure what it is yet but I am sure it will be interesting.

Unveiling Date Set!!!

October 15, 2006

The date has been set for the unveiling of the four murals. Markit down OCT 25th!!!! I proposed this event for two reasons. 1st: I wanted to have the entire Drew community a chance to see the murals. 2nd: I wanted to find a way that said I officially finished the murals. It should be a good event and a ton of people will be invited. It will also be during Wednesday lunch which is extremely busy. Thank you for all of your support.

Div# 2 Done Completely

October 15, 2006

It was a pretty long day painting but I was able to get a lot done and the first divider=2murals are DONE. They have been covered up with paper until the day of the unveiling. It should be a great event. Click on image to view larger. R.I.P. Casio Exilim Camera

There is a lot more detail on this wall than there was before. I hope people enjoy it. The mural was very simple before but now it has more of a classic feel to it.
This wall has been on of my favorites to work on. It sets a real intimate feel for the room and the way the lights hit the pink is amazing. You could even create your own story of what is going on in the mural.
