I’m extremely proud to introduce this project to you all. For the last couple of months I’ve been teasing you with this one, and the day is finally here.
I made a mural/decal for a coffee shop (Common Grounds Gowrie) in Canberra, Australia which will be opening their doors for the first time tomorrow Thursday 19th at 7.30am local time, that’s less than 8 hours from now!
The challenge was to find a way to incorporate a lot of the hobbies and sports of the land down under along with their most symbolic animals. You could say it was a match made in heaven, if you’ve been following my work, you know I love making animals with human traits that are steezy as hell. So that’s exactly what I did, I made a scene full of animals that look way too cool and captured the essence of what Australia means, or at least that’s what I hope for.
It was a super fun project that started by a pencil sketch that I later inked by hand. Once that was done I scanned the whole thing and cleaned up in Adobe Illustrator. The vector file was later printed on vinyl and installed on the wall that is roughly 8 meters wide by 3 meters high.
I won’t have a chance to see it first hand (at least for now), so to all Australians that are nearby, go check out the coolest coffee shop in town and take tons of pictures and send some my way, or tell me what’s your first impression when seeing this massive wall?
