The Mural Project: Coming down to the line…

October 26, 2011 | By Brent Almond | DESIGN STUFF, LESSONS LEARNED

…and the dot and the swirl and the squiggle.

My goal (well, my latest goal — there have been several) was to have Jon’s mural done by his second birthday. Or more importantly, his second birthday party. Which is exactly 10 days away. Zoinks.

I have made some progress, which is posted below. Let me know what you think, and please continue to cheer me on. The end is in sight! Let’s just hope I don’t go crazy and — as I’m prone to do — overdo it. No “undo” command on this bad boy.

Before dots, my go-to design element was the "swirl." It was all the rage in the 90s.

Look, the dots have grown stems!

A wider shot — Jon was quite excited about all the new "gween."

Lord willing (and the creek don’t rise), I’ll be back here in 10 days, posting pics of the final product!

      Thanks — I’m trying! 🙂 Yes, we’re hoping for no icing in the eyes, but will be surprised if it doesn’t end up in his hair at least. Miss you too!
