As you must have figured out by now, I love me some murals.
And yesterday, I got to see the progress on the Warrior Run school mural, which will begin being installed next month.
The cool thing about this mural is its construction, which is through digital and tile work – very cool stuff. And the artist, Warrior Run alum Jon Laidacker, is giving a behind-the-scenes look on his Facebook page.
One thing that fascinated me was the paint-by-numbers concept he’s using to help students and community members get involved. Here’s a look at what the tiles look like after he traces them from a digital file onto a tile and numbers them by color:
And the scale is amazing.
It’s going to be huge. Here’s a video look at the eagle, just one-fifth of the mural.
I’ll of course be keeping you updated as this progresses – check back!
