Big City was recently given the task of designing and hand painting school murals at four locations around the campus of Gabrielino High School in San Gabriel, near Los Angeles, in Southern California.

Here is how it went:

First, along with the paper patterns, I usually produce scale printouts at a fairly large size — it’s so much easier to know where things are supposed to go when you’re close to the wall. Sometimes it’s even dangerous to try to step back to see if it looks right!

Then, on to the school. First was this track shed. Here are a couple of progress shots:

Next, the stadium press booth. This was to get painted graphics, then dimensional brushed silver letters installed over the painted portion. The idea was to make a big impression for the school. Here are a couple of progress shots:
