While painting the wind was blowing so hard that I needed a kind volunteer to help hold my stencil. In exchange he wanted the color red to spraypaint his name on a different panel.


PaperMonster-Progress
I wanted to attempt some pasting and collage work that I had never done in an outdoor piece and everything turned out great.

Out of the hundres of people out for the event I had the pleasure of meeting this teacher and her friends who loved the finished piece.

One of my favorite photos of the day. I was standing in the street and he just kept standing infront of the pannel flexing his muscles so I had to capture it and share it with everyone.
