Historical referenced / Site specific  
     
 

I participated in a mural event called "the Walldogs" back in 2014, in Shipshewana, Indiana. What made that event stand out was the subject matter of the murals - an annual event that brings in dozens of mainly sign painters, painting typically 15 murals over 4 days, all about the specific town the event is held. All the murals are historically referenced, either about old local businesses, local personalities, places and other things that are unique to the town itself. I was asked to be a team leader for such events, or a mural designer, a few times over the past few years - and in that, got the opportunity to dive into the history of the town and do a lot of research. I was able to bring my own angle and vision while telling the story of these tows. .

Since then this specific combination of historical referenced story telling has been a part of my repertoir. For me, it's a wonderful way to learn about local and general history and a great challenge to bring to life each and every mural. These murals are typical very detailed and historical in content and visuals, or at least a part of it.

Below are some samples of that style.
