33 - Mural part 7

...And on the 7th day it was DONE! I did all the touch up today and finished the Cat n the Hat. Had to go back and redo almost all of the outlines which look much better now. We are planning on having the bookstore open for business on Wednesday July 1st and then I guess I will be getting a lot of feedback. Though lucky me I have had employees going in and out all week checking to see what I'm doing and they all seem to like it, hopefully the kids will agree. Now I can get to stocking all the empty shelves we have.

31 - Mural part 5

...And on day 5 the color really got added. Finally starting to look like something. If all goes well I will have the color finished tomorrow, which would be good, I think the other employees are getting jealous of my time painting...

30 - Mural part 4

...And here we have the rest of what I have done so far. Just got started on the color, hopefully the rest of the color will bring it all together. Hell as long as some kids get a kick out of it I'll be happy.

27 - Mural part 1

Well here it is. Finally getting some artwork done. Talk of a mural for the children's section at the new bookstore I got hired to work for in the Idaho Youth Ranch started during my interview and the other day one of my bosses said it was put up or shut up time. She gave me a full day to figure out what to put on the wall and I spent the next work day putting it all up on the wall in charcoal. Finished off the work week, Saturday and Sunday for me, by putting all the outlining up on the wall in black paint. Sunday afternoon I even got a little bit of the color put up. Hopefuuly I will be wrapping this up soon, I think my managers want me to get back to work, lol.
And yes it is more of a disjointed collection of characters then a fluid integrated mural but that's what I'm calling it. More pics will follow.

26 - 32 months

Well... let's see. Got a new wife, check. Got a full time job, check. Got a stack of bills to catch up on, check. All things going as planned I guess. Stress stress stress, but in a way it makes me happy. for I have hit another little milestone, it has been 32 months since I had a smoke. Still want one some days but I don't need one anymore. Now if I could just get some new stuff up here I would be doing great. I blame the Warhammer.
