ArtBox Project for @PghCityPaper (part 5)

I was selected to paint (decorate? enhance? art?) one of ten Pittsburgh City Paper street boxes. This is Part 5 of my progress reports.

This is the back of the box where Andy will be, but just the background is complete.

The next thing I did was the flesh tones. Those were the scariest part of the box for me (along with the balloons), so I decided to tackle them first.

And then, here’s Andy’s head complete.

…And the back of the box with the masking removed. This is the side that will be facing the street. I think it’s safe to say I’m pretty satisfied with how he turned out.
