RIME Paints A Piece Based On An Askew Sketch
Askew's sketch for Rime
Working the sketch
Here is my version of the Askew sketch. I painted this wall with Dabs, Myla, Vans (Omega), & Witness. Since the space on the wall was so wide, and Vans was getting pretty technical with his piece (see full wall shots here), I decided to rework the sketch, making it more built up. After the first mark up on the wall, I decided to put the sketch away and go with what felt natural. I added in some new connections and reworked the proportions a bit. Overall I am happy with the finished result.
While we were painting, Ewok called and told us MJ just kicked the bucket. He urged us to be the first to Paint a tribute to the the self proclaimed "King of Pop". Augor came through and started on the character. I stepped in, giving Jacko a face lift and added in some small details. Vans even joined in by putting some jewels on the glove. I originally wanted to write "Touching Young Fans From The Grave And Beyond" and have MJ's grave site with a large tombstone. I would of had his arm coming out of the ground, grabbing onto a young boy's thigh... Maybe next time?
