I spent about six hours today working on a second version of the mural that includes more people and better images. I'm waiting to hear back for approval, and then I can finally begin to illustrate it. Yay! I would like to start early next week preparing the wall for painting. Since it is brick, it would be best to smooth it out to save time and improve the quality of the finished piece. It would also stop it from looking distorted when viewed from the road! Then after I lay down a white base coat, I'll be good to go. But first things first, I must get the illustation approved.
