On October 23rd, Kim and I packed up the van with supplies and started our first mural project of 2020.
Received a kind email asking if Kim & I would like to paint a message for the Frontline Workers. Yes of course, please send us more details. After a couple emails and a phone call later. The only question was when & where.
The two, 8 by 4 feet property for sale SOLD signs were removed from Base Line Rd E, across from Victoria Hospital and relocated to a suitable socially distant space.
Arrived shortly after 8:30 am and painted till about 3 pm.
Dear Frontline Healthcare Workers
Everyday Kim & I are shocked and delighted that we get to paint a massive mural at one of our favourite airports, London!!!
At the start of this project, we wanted to push ourselves and try complete within a month. With that being said, we've decided to adjust our painting schedule when the cafe/bar is only closed.
Let's be honest, nobody wants to hear the beeps of the sky jack when on vacay mode. We get it!!!
Thanks for all the Love & Support!

Happy with the progress.
Tonight I'm adding texture to the stones...
As with any project. Fresh creative problem solving, is always essential.
In this case?....
Translating proper perspective from a distance.
While I'm sure there are many ways, to go about doing so.
We decided to use a lazer pointer, to help guide main structural lines.
It's been working super awesome!
