While recently working on the Toledano St. mural for Breaux Mart, I was asked by Mr. Alex Vargas to consider repainting the 40-year old signage mural for his body shop. Truthfully, the entire wall had to be replaced due to termite damage, and I used old photos to recreate the look. I happily "fit it in", by adding an additional week rental for the scissor lift. Regarding the latest Breaux Mart mural, my perfectionist streak is waiting to post photos of it, though folks constantly stop to take photos and tell me how much they love it, which deeply pleases me. It will take at least another month to complete.

I had my first experience navigating Jefferson Parish bureacracy in the form of applying for a variance and permits for these two signs. I used a boom to reach the area above the awning, and used thick upholstery foam and plywood to level out a shelf on top of the awning to prevent myself from slipping. I also wore a harness to try and prevent myself from being hurt if I did somehow slip. ...Another satisfied customer!

I did this portrait of Bennie Ratliff, a Mardi Gras Indian who is wheelchair-bound, in the hopes he can use it to make posters and fans to add to his income. He is a great guy- very inspiring and determined through all the adversity!

Max Bernardi Murals & More, LLC just completed an exterior signage mural on Julia Street for "World of Beer" just in time for White Linen Night, 2016. They probably would have sold a lot of beer without it, but I'm sure they were slammin' with this this new addition to their street presence!
