I painted up these new murals at the new Tijuana Flats location in Jacksonville, FL.
My initial idea was “steampunk Iron Man”… I think I succeeded. An art friend dubbed him “Furnace Bot”, which is appropriate. I picked out this brownish paint for his body, but it turned out to be too dark. I made an attempt to wipe the paint off the small section I had tested and I accidentally stumbled upon this sort of staining/painting effect for the metal body. The end result was what I was actually looking for!
4+ years making art for Tijuana Flats, and I’m still learning new things. That’s pretty cool.
