May 2016 was proving to be a very busy month for me in Chicago, especially after I was invited to create an interior mural at the Threadless Headquarters right after finishing the Havas Worldwide mural. This beauty of a wall took 3 days to complete and it lives in the lobby entrance to the Threadless Headquarters. This room is intended to remain black and white. Two local Chicago artists that also work in Black and White will complete murals to the left and right of mine. I am honored not only to be the first wall muralist they invited to paint at their new location but also to be an out of towner... Though these days I am feeling quite like a Chicago local! The two cameras in the foreground recorded my process and will be turned into a timelapse which I will post soon! Threadless believes that "You are Threadless. You make the ideas, you pick what we sell, you're why we exist... We love helping art unknowns become art totally-knowns, which is why every single one of our products carries an artist's name. We support our artist community in every way possible, whether it be through our our annual creative awards, our commission-based award system, or simply by tweeting their name to the world. Lots of our artists have even gone on to start their own companies, and we believe that's a success."
Amen! I couldn't be happier that a permanent mural of mine lives at the Threadless Headquarters in Chicago!
