Hailcure LLC is a Texas based company that recently set up shop here in Colorado Springs. They asked me to design and paint a wall mural that would help catch the attention of folks driving by. Phase one of this project was to paint their logo and phone number on the left side of this 60x12ft wall. Assuming the weather will hold up, I’ll begin painting the rest of the mural which will include a mountain scene of Pikes Peak in the background and Garden of the Gods in the foreground, along with a lightning storm overhead. Looking forward to get the rest of this project underway. Thanks to Jesse and his team for letting me bring this project to life.
Earl’s Kitchen, an upscale restaurant chain out of Vancouver, BC Canada, asked us to paint some wall graphics in their downtown Denver location that would help direct folks to the upstairs bar and patio. I did not design the graphics, just did a bit of painting for them. We were painting on smooth tile so it took a bit of work to make sure the paint would adhere properly. The client wanted the restaurant graphics to have a distressed look so that’s what I did. Turned out pretty good, I dig it.
The folks at Breckenridge Distillery are working on opening their new retail store at the distillery in Breckenridge, CO. I painted their logo earlier this year in their new restaurant about 12ft wide. This time I was painting their logo 4ft wide but four times within the retail space. Two logos on the dark wall and two logos on the light wall.
The painting was done using a projector and some basic house paint from the folks at Ace Hardware.
By the way, if you haven’t been to Breckenridge Distillery or if you haven’t tried any of their spirits, I highly recommend it. Great flavor, high end flavor, and always goes down smooth. Awesome folks working their as well.
A student from the Rocky Mountain Lineman School approached me with a new project. Him and his fellow school mates want to paint some lineman graphics on a 40′ x 8.5′ storage container. Sounds like a fun and challenging project. Here’s what I came up with for a design. This project should be going underway as soon as we get some nice weather here in Colorado Springs. Can’t wait!
Jersey Joe headed to Brooklyn, two blocks from Converse Rubber Tracks, to bring his street art talents to the side of Grand and Union. Rooted in the middle of Williamsburg, the piece features a mix of Chucks, fall colors, and characters. I love seeing an artist really shine, good stuff Joe. Cheers.
