By taking what I have learned in class and applying it to the real world I am finding out that many more opportunities are opening up. Just recently I ran into an artist around my age who needed help creating a mural and wanted it to be a form of collaboration.
Because it was so large she chose to get a crew of 5 to 6 other artists who had a background in painting, or drawing. For the last month and a half we have spent time on making this a masterpiece of our own.
We chose to go with a "flat" look since the mural is in a school with a younger audience. My first thoughts were doubtful but the more we developed the flatness, the better it turned out.
