spray it, don't say it.

i painted this mural 4th of july weekend.
i did the big face mainly with house paint. i notice when you do a mural with house paint, cops drive by waving hi and giving the thumbs up. but the moment you highlight the painting with spraypaint then you become a suspect. kinda crazy.  i repainted this wall again because the colors were looking really dull.  that's what 3 years in the sun will do to you.  gonna coat this new one with u.v protection! might take a while to finish the whole wall, but here's a small portion of it.

this is the longest wall i've ever done.  i really don't know how artist in the u.k have enough energy to do 10+ stories mural.

My personal favorite part of the wall is the ninja w/the checkered scarf. There appears to be another figure to his right, which you might have tried to buff, not sure if this was purposely done, but it adds great depth.

The mural came out awesome, but I'm a little concerned for your safety- looks like there's no sidewalk where you were working!!
