I was actually surprised to see that last weeks piece remained as intact as I saw it. Usually, murals get painted over fairly quickly.
I really enjoyed doing a car last time and was in the mood to do another. A photographer that documents whats happening at the park really enjoyed the loose sketch before it was colored. What I thought was really neat about that sketch was how the graffiti was able to show through the car sketch.
With the next mural, I wanted to have the cars "paint" be the graffiti that I was painting over. The first car was more modern and sporty. I wanted the next car to be more cartoony, which is why I went with the Ambassador. Its an iconic Indian design thats been around for 60 years or so. As I was painting, it drew a lot of attention from the Indian observers at the park. Overall, I'm very pleased with this piece.
