Historical referenced / Walldog murals  

I bacame a part of the group / event called "the Walldogs" back in 2014, when I attended my first Walldog meet in Shipshewana, Indiana. I got hooked right away.

The Walldogs are a group of highly skilled sign painters and mural artists from all over the globe. They meet once or twice a year to paint a number of murals usually in small midwest America towns, depicting the local history on their walls. At those "meets" one can be all the way from just an observer to a team leader, or a mural designer, if they are chosen to be. The meets are on each individual's expense, but everything is supplied - from hosting in local homes to food, drink, materials, equipment and logistics. So far I participated in a few meets, for some I was just a helper, and for some I was chosen as a mural deisnger, a team leader.

Since then and in between Meets, I get requested to keep that style, and come up with designs that help tell specific stories as well as provide a strong visual out in the streets. For me, it's a wonderful way to learn about local and general history and a great challenge to bring to life each and every mural. These murals are typical very detailed and somewhat historical in content and visuals, at least a part of it.

Below are some samples of that style from the Walldog meets and other similar projects.
