The sort of thing advertising agencies of yore could not invent. I discovered a maxim with my owh efforts which is that it usually pays to go large, that miniscule or shy defeats every purpose.

    1. The City invited muralist from all over the country to participate in this festival, paid some of their expenses I believe but no fee, and the results are quite striking. ‘Tis a vibrant art community in this area. 🙂

    1. Two artists, Gregg & Mike, both of whom I met while taking this picture, one of them from Atlanta. On another mural I haven’t posted yet several artists collaborated, joking and clowning around as they worked, somehow nevertheless coordinating their efforts.
