Urban Ocean Festival 2011

Here's my contribution to the Urban Ocean Festival at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

One of the more fun murals done in about ~12 1/2 hours over 2 days. Part of the Art Miles Mural Project, an amazing project bringing art to children all around the world. I was one of the live artists to draw people in while kids and families were welcome to join in on the fun with one of our other canvases set up to paint.

Thanks to all the volunteers and staff that helped out. Couldn't of pulled off such a speedy mural without all the help I received with water changes, paint distributing, and canvas moving. Everyone was awesome!

The theme was Urban Ocean and I started out with the thought of gears in the ocean and a couple of photos from the Monterey Bay Aquarium of a wolf eel skeleton and an octopus. One of my fastest murals and paintings to date. I had a lot of fun, with free reign and creativity that I don't normally get on work projects.
