I reworked the top to have a rendering of Apollo.

I had some fun with the spraypaints on the back and sides, but I am still going to rework the top.

Cool caterpillar

Random creature of the day.

I picked it up to take a look and ended up with a rash :P

Not too happy

I continued spraying and tried adding tonal value. This was difficult to control, but I played around until I found the look I wanted.

Overall though, the images were too flat and somewhat boring.

This was the top area. I decided I needed some reworking.

Spray painted

After some brainstorming and rough sketches, I decided on imagery for the stand. I look at this project as a form of street art, so I wanted to use the tools and medim of street artists... Spray paint!

I put a first layer down of red, then cut bird stencils from brown grocery bags. The birds were then sprayed black to look like ravens.


Primed, sanded and ready to work.

This stand really ate up the primer, I used 3 cans to get this level of coverage.

Cleaning up the newstand

I employed the help of the Oxbowettes :-)

RN&R News stand project

Reno News and Review newspaper, have asked local artists to paint some of their stands as an upcoming art installation in downtown. I have my stand and have been working on turning it into an art piece.
