I recently submitted a design idea to the BLVD Hotel and Spa for a mural design competition they are holding. It is a competition for artists in the Los Angeles area wherein the artists of the top 8 mural projects compete in front of a live audience from September 24 thru September 25. Each artist is allowed an 8 by 6 foot “canvas” on which to paint their design. After Sunday the 25th, the pieces are uploaded to the hotel’s website, and the public votes on the “top” piece.
I was one of the 8 artists picked!
The competition starts at 12 PM Saturday, but I will be arriving late since I was unable to get a sub for work until then, and goes until 6PM Sunday. My piece depicts Hollywood Boulevard. Each artist was asked to design a piece inspired by or featuring one of 8 “famous boulevards of Los Angeles.”
I will be sure to post pictures of the process as it happens. It should be a lot of fun, but it will also be very hard. I’m pretty darn excited! I have a feeling that I will be pretty pooped Sunday night, so please be patient if I do not post anything until Monday.
