One Year Later—Back to the Beginning

One year ago today marked the very first post on our blog, Art Behind the Fridge. It is hard to believe that this fun side project, started as an alternative to just doing projects for school, has gone on for a full year now. With this new school quarter starting, and graduation approaching for both of us this summer, I realize that this “fun project” has become a huge part of the college experience for us. I have found, over the course of this year, the blog to be about fun, friendship and simply doing what it is that we love to do. Thanks to everyone we have connected to along the way so far.

Now, one year later it seems that we have revisited right where we started—a suiting way to kick off another year. The last week of school before the holiday break, we got the opportunity to do another environmental illustration on the large window area of the store at our school, The Art Institute of Jacksonville. Where the first time around I believe it took us a couple of weeks to complete, this time we did it in the span of six hours. Looking at if from the front, I did the left side and Nick did the right side.

Sara Basse was awesome enough to photo document the experience and compile it into this time lapsed video.
(sorry, for some reason I cannot embed the video.. but please click the link and check it out)

Following the video we came in and added some color to the scene. If you happen to be visiting the school, stop by the student store and check it out.




Wow, I’m the first post. That is kind of scary. 

Ok so this is a window I painted in front of the student store at my school, The Art Institute of Jacksonville. I was approached about doing this project by my friend Jim (as he likes to be called, he is also my fellow blogger). I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to do my illustrations with a new medium (in this case paint on glass).   

Window 1

After about an hour, this is what I came up with. And that was the end of the first day ladies and gents.

Window 2

The second day I added the robot. and the guy throwing out the clothes, the clothes line, and the kiddy pool.

Window 4And after about 2 weeks this is what I ended up with. Finally a finished window. I know its kind of hard to see the entire thing so below I put some close ups.
