Recent work – Los Cerritos Middle School stairwell hand painted mural

Recent hand-painted school mural project at Los Cerritos Middle School in Thousand Oaks, CA (near Los Angeles). It’s impact is undeniable!

First, detail photos are shown below.  It was so hard to show the whole thing in one photo that I merged the detail photos into one in Photoshop, in the last photo.

Recent work — UC Irvine water tank graphics

Hand painted graphics are very suitable for rough surfaces. That’s one reason why Big City was called on to provide this approx. 28′ x 31′ UCI logo graphic on the northwest side of this 100′ high central plant water tank at UC Irvine in Orange County, CA.

Here, the 125′ lift is ready to go:

UCI-1-START

 

After prepping the surface with steel wool etching and a TSP wash, the paper pattern to transfer the full size design to the surface was applied and painting began.

 

Here you can see the depth of those ribs, and how big the work actually is:

UCI-4-DETAIL

 

Just for fun, I took a few photos from the lift to show how high it is:

 

Aaaaaannnnd… we’re done! Another happy client.
