At about 2:30 this morning fellow artist, Bloo Empire
and I completed our paste up collaboration for a local trendy clothing store here in Charlotte. It was a lot of work and a lot of stress but in the end I think the final product turned out pretty darn good. The wall measures 8' x 8'... And that my friend is quite a bit of legal sized paper.
Oh... and a big screw you to Kinko's for hiring morons to run their shops. It would have made this project much easier if the monkies they employ knew how to... no, correction, wanted to know how to print tiles from the large format xerox printer. We ended up printing all the pieces ourselves.
I created the rider and little ghosties. Bloo Empire created the dragon and little flying robots.

Very cool project. Yeah, screw Kinkos... I got more stories...
Your stuff would look great animated... just a thought.

Looks great! I've had the same Kinko's experience - I usually just jump over the counter and start pushing the buttons myself. Makes me feel like a real reprographic technical service support professional, or copy guy.

That's awesome. love it!
If you and Bloo and your paintbrushes ever happen to be in Brooklyn, I have a wall...

Around by me, ever since FedEx took over, they've sucked butt.

Brandon, nice work. Nice to see your work in a large format. Thanks for the Chapelle link, laughed my butt off. Rings true.
