Projections

A friend recently bought me a working overhead projector from the tip shop, and projectors only mean one thing to me - murals! I haven't shown the previous mural on this site, so figured it was a good opportunity to show some other work of mine and make sure everyone hears about The Agrestic Grocer on Molong Road, on the outskirts of Orange.

Last year, my brother and his partner were helping a group of Orange locals set up a cafe and produce store at the old Totally Local site. It seemed like a great opportunity to help a worthwhile local business and work with some nice people, so I joined in and painted a very simple, subtle rural scene in silhouette on the back wall of the cafe.

An old school overhead projector was tracked down and put to good use to transfer the sketch up onto the wall:



The final painting is so subtle it looks like a shadow and you can eat an entire meal there and not even see it, which I personally see as rather a success!


If you haven't already visited The Agrestic Grocer, head out there for your weekly grocery shop or a very tasty meal of local seasonal produce. More information about them can be found here.


Now that I have my own overhead projector I suspect it's time to start thinking about painting another mural...

  1. I have always loved your illustration style, and this approach of using the real shadows is obvious and insightful
