The proposal.

I finished the mural in Montreal last Tuesday. Click here to read the article in the Mirror about the eco-fair I participated in.

It is supposed to be a cross-sectional landscape. Apparently it looked too much like a page out of a coloring book for some of the neighbors. That was encouraging news to hear at the beginning of day three. I dont know what I think about it. The owner of the building had all these contradicting demands. Id like to think without that Id have done something better. Maybe not.

It's still pretty cool; just too bad it doesn't have soemthing alive/animated in it, like a bear or a dragon or a flaming pigeon, b/c I think it would have brought it to life.

what's that big black splat on the sidewalk next to the empty ladder? Looks like someone may have had taken a fall...

Prozacville said...

Cool. You're like fucking ITNERNATIONAL.

Montreal, Japan, Masser-Chew-Shits.

Makes me think of the beginning of Don't You Worry About A Thing by the great Mr Stephen Wonder where he goes something like: "Paris. Beirut. Iraq. Iran. I speak very good Spanish. Chevere, chevere..."

Prozacville said...

Groovy is only cool when you say it phonetically, in hebrew. Or if you're The Nad.

Sorry.
