Visualizing a Mural

When I was offered a commission to create a mural on three adjacent walls at Liminal Studios half a block from the Empire State Building, I was very excited. Instead of coming up with something out of thin air, I browsed my sketchbook and found the doodle below which I created while riding BART from San Francisco airport to the East Bay a few months ago. It inspired me to create a mural of several fantastical flowers, pollinated by various creatures. I shot a time lapse video action video showing me painting the mural. I did it all freehand, without penciling anything in on the walls. The flowers are mandalas, combining simple shapes that add up to complex forms. I accompanied it with a track from my friend John Sully's new album, This Music Is Broken. Hope you enjoy this little peek into my mural creation process!
