After much preparation, this week is the start of a new mural project for the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. This is the very first mural that John and I have created together from the beginning. So here are some images of where we are currently at with the project. We have set the installation for the second week in May, so if you want to check us out while we install, follow the blog around May.
Here are the two sketches of the design.
Above prepping the wall. Below are two rolls of the material prepped and ready to be stretched.
Laying out the material upside down and seaming it together.
Setting up the scaffolding. Laying out the grid. Mapping out the mural.
I am excited to start painting after a few months of office and paper work.
