west lafayette mural: day 8


Yesterday, Zach, Pete, and I made full use of the warm sun and worked hard to finish the front south pylon. There are still some details to touch up and some background pieces to be added in, but for now, this wall is more or less done. From here on, it will totally be up to the weather to determine how soon we can be back at work.


In terms of time, this mural takes the prize for being the longest and most challenging project thus far. It may look like we accomplished a lot in just 8 painting sessions but in fact, a lot of time had already gone into meetings, shopping for paint and supplies, stencil cutting, and sketching prior to priming and the actual painting. It's hard working on such a large scale, but at the same time, it's also been super satisfying to see it all coming together, slowly, but surely. If you'd like to revisit the humble beginnings of this gigantic mural, we've archived all related posts in the picture box labeled "West Lafayette Mural" on the right side of the blog. Just click it and you'll be transported back in time! ;)
