THE MAINE JUMP MURAL PROJECT
I have been commissioned to design the interior and paint a mural for 'The Maine Jump' in Bangor, Maine. 'The Maine Jump' is a kid's playspace featuring bounce castles, slides and other play areas, a private function room and food service areas. The mural will be 120' x 10' [ 1200 sq. ft if you prefer] and will feature aspects of life in Maine - scenic locations, landmarks, sport and leisure activities, industry, wildlife, famous Mainers and other aspects of life in Maine. The mural will be rendered in a graphic style using 1930's travel posters as inspiration. Working with jpeg images in Adobe Illustrator, creating outlines which will later be projected onto the wall and painted. Follow the progress of the project on this blog and feel free to comment. Shown here are a couple of the images I am working on.
