Heeeeeey Youuuuuuu Guuuuuuuuys!

So this past weekend was the 'Storm the Castle' event organized by Spratx & the friendly peeps from theCHIVE. They brought 30 artists together to paint murals in an abandoned warehouse in E. Austin following the theme of "Heroes/Icons". There was music, food trucks, art vendors, cold beer/water, free swag & a ton of great people….it was a blast!
After mulling over ideas on what I would paint for this event, I finally came upon a "hero" from my childhood that HAD to be painted. Yep…the disfigured, sweetheart that we've ALL impersonated numerous times with his unforgettable one-liners & catch phrases: SLOTH!!

Here's a quick, process video of me painting this big guy from photos taken by the lovely Hilary Hitt:

THANK YOU to everyone who came out. It was great seeing old faces & meeting new friends!
ALSO! The fine people at theCHIVE are currently holding a "Viewer's Choice" competition from all the murals created at the event. Go check them all out & if you think my SLOTH mural was "good enough",  please cast a vote for me! There's no sign up necessary,  just a quick click & you're done! You can also vote per IP address, so every phone, computer, iPad, tablet, whatever... each count as a separate vote.  VOTE HERE:
Thanks so much for your continued support! "Sloth…love…YOU!"
