The mural spans a 12ft x 16ft space and is a supporting element to the 6' fish tank that was just put in. I think it came out well and it was nice to get out of a 7 year mural drought. I want to thank The Goddard School for giving me the opportunity to do this with full artistic freedom. I will post process shots soon.

I've had this idea in my head to combine my love of surf/skate art, cartoons, hot rods and monsters. There's probably more I can do to this piece but it's time to move on. I will be doing more of these. This was a lot of fun.
