The STL Mural Project is finally complete. It was a long time in the works... but when it came down to slinging paint... it took 4 of us 4 days. 44 isn't my favorite number for nuthin. Although the subject and style are far from my own work, the end product is vibrant and works well with the innovative communities in downtown St. Louis. We were happy to add a bright spot in a dark alley. We are looking forward to many many more murals in the near future. Keep your eyes peeled St. Louis!
This is one of the eleven cakes that I painted for STL250. My UBP Crew painted 28 cakes total. We had a great time painting these monuments to St. Louis' 250th birthday. In the last frame you can see my trademark image of my Dad. This cake was obviously for Laclede Gas. I enjoyed painting a tribute to the hard working crew that keep the gas flowing in STL.
My artwork has never been complete without my Dad getting to see it. Since he passed away in 2/2/2006, I have been doing work about him and eventually the image seen above is the one that makes its way into most of my work. It is at the very least, the tag on the back of my work.
