In 2012 from the 6th to the 10th of February I worked on a mural for Google Sydney’s Tech Stop, a place Aussie Googlers frequent for tech advice and equipment. The idea behind the design was a mixture of Australiana and technology, featuring Australian wildlife enjoying various Google products, across the varying Australian landscape. I had a lot of fun even just brainstorming and sketching the various scenarios.
I planned the illustration digitally and had it approved by Google. I then used a projector to trace my image as a sketch on the wall. I then used Dulux interior acrylic paint which reinforced the my cartoonish aesthetics. Although I have participated in an aerosol mural before, I’ve never done one that’s all my own.
The whole experience was a challenge, particularly when it came to applying the linework with a steady hand, yet ultimately it was very rewarding. The encouragement and comments I received inspired me to do my best. Here are a couple of progress shots.
