A quick stop to visit friends, quote on future projects and a fresh coat at the BMX club wall.
Since the early 2000’s, I have visited Aramac on numerous tours Central Queensland. I returned in July of this year, when I saw four of my murals at the local school still looking good with the exception of my first creation which had seen better days. I called into Aramac State School on my way between Barcaldine and Muttaburra, and I was in lucky enough find a group of volunteers on the grounds and the Acting Principal in her office on a Saturday. Permission was granted to re-paint the deteriorated space themed mural so I jumped straight to it. Time was limited as I still had some way to travel that afternoon if I was to avoid driving through peak kangaroo traffic after sunset. It was ambitious attempting a 3D piece in a short timeframe with zero planning but the wall called for something special. Hot outback winds were gusting and the sun rays intensified throughout the afternoon. I was happy with the final outcome and the school is so satisfied they have made contact and offered to remunerate me for the artwork which I undertook without any commercial arrangement. The spontaneity of unplanned murals can mean they turn out to be the most memorable experiences.
Fresh for 2016.
This very retro looking caravan received an appropriate make over with a classic typography inspired style.
