The May Block Party ATX took place the day after the Super Flower Blood Moon Eclipse and I was invited to paint on a wall panel for the first time. Since the wall panels are reused after each Block Party, I used the opportunity to practice spray painting in a more realistic style.
While I’d illustrated a lot of portraits and floral work before, capturing that level of detail in spray paint seemed very daunting. It was definitely a challenge, but I ended up happy with the end result. I chose a rose flower cast in a circle to represent the Super Flower Blood Moon and the woman basking underneath the eclipse was based on a photograph of my friend and fellow artist DeLoné Osby.
I spray painted this 4’x8′ piece in front of a live audience over 3 hours, without any stencils. Check out the timelapse video and photos below to see the whole process.
