Ode to My Mural

Klux said she wanted to see this shit, so here’s my officially finished mural for my Mural Painting class. I’m displaying it here on my ISSS, just because I have an ego that fills more space than Rosie O’Donnel in bathroom stall/closet/large ballroom/pretty much anywhere, she takes up a shitload of space. Anyway, the mural is going to look like random doodling, but there’s actually a theme to it and a few hidden things. Keep that in mind for the end.

If you’re wondering why I look like TOTAL SHIT, I’ll ask you how you would look after just finishing painting something for 12 hours. Also, I’m trying to grow out my hair. even though I look stupid with long hair (even though girls seem to like it?) I need to make a poll. I came back later and took real pictures for real, and here they are:

My parent decided that they wanted to come see my mural as well. I charged them 15 dollars to view it. They gladly paid.

Title: ?

Time spent on original sketch: 2 hours

Time spent drawing/gridding: approx 25 hours

Time spent painting: approx 28 hours

Total time: 55 hours

Location: 1st Floor Men’s Bathroom Entrance in Copernicus Hall,Central Connecticut State University, New Britain CT, United States of America

In case you’re wondering, which I’m sure you are because you’re all FUCKING OBSESSED WITH MY DICK, here is the original sketch of what the mural was supposed to look like. The sketch itself is maybe 5 inches by15 inches (rough estimate, I never really measured). Basically, what I had to do was grid it up and then transpose it onto the walls of this little alcove.

So off of that sketch, I was able to get this:

………..

Okay….I was going to put a video I took of my mural here, but the quality looks so shitty on youtube that I’m not even going to bother…it’s to bad too because I used this song as the background music….ahh fuck it, here the video sucks but if I’m putting the song up anyway…

I don’t know why it’s all choppy and shitty it works fine on my computer….oh well here’s some more pictures.

Well that’s about it. Now it’s time to play the game. How many things can you find hidden in this mural, and where are they? Here’s the list:

Find:

  • 5 words (What are they? Hint, they’re really big)
  • One reference to anime.
  • Two references to a band.

And lastly, what is the theme?

There’s a shitload of more shit hidden in there, but if I tell you any of it, it would give away the theme. Hopefully, someone dumb like Robert doesn’t come here and tell everyone, since he was there when I was painting it. He knows the theme though that’s it.

Random fact: I was going to paint “ANCE” on the end of the MECHANICAL ROOM sign, so that it read, MECHANICAL ROOMANCE. I thought that would be funny, but I didn’t do it. If you don’t get it, I’m not going to tell you.

Extra Shit

So despite the fact that I have a lot of post drafts written up and just waiting to be sent out, I think this might be one of my last posts till the New Year. Maybe one more year end wrap up where I can point out all the shitty shows that are coming up in Winter. They all suck. That being said, here’s an update on some anime shit:

Berserk – I’m coming very very close to finishing this series. I’ve been steamrolling it as much as time allows me to these past few days, and I should finish within the week. Fact is, Caska is fucking awesome. She’s going to be the character that leads to me making a list of all my favorite anime babes that make you think the wrong thing. Caska is my desktop wallpaper right now, replacing a stalker version of Mizore Shirayuki, and it doesn’t look like a change is coming anytime soon.

Fate/Zero – Anime forthcoming. ufotable (Kara no Kyoukai, Futakoi Alternative). This show already gets at least a 5 for a rating. My anticipation is VERY high for it’s premier.

Bleach (manga) – Is anyone else feeling pumped up about the direction of the story? Fuck I can’t wait.

Let’s Lagoon – Is ANYONE subbing this? Or is it REALLY just THAT slow to come out? It’s barely getting started, and it’s one of my favorite manga, but I haven’t seen a new chapter in MONTHS. FRUSTRATING!!!!

Chatmonchy is the best.
