It has been a little while since I have updated, but so much has been happening!!
This past Friday, we attended a Hawaiian blessing for a project that I have been working on with Jalpak Hawaii. For the past few months I have been busy preparing artwork for a brand new Jalpak Hawaii double decker tour bus! It was such a fun project to work on and the people at Jalpak Hawaii made it such a pleasure.
We started out with the rough dimensions of the bus including windows, doors, etc and figured out that I needed to basically paint an image that was 18"x72" so it could be scaled up correctly to fit the bus size with no distortion. I ended up painting two 18x36 canvasses that matched up and then we could stitch them together digitally once they were done and scanned and send to the printer for the bus wrap.

The theme that we went with on this bus was "Discover Aloha" and once I saw the bus in person, I really had the feeling of Aloha washing over me (maybe i'm a bit biased though!) For the back of the bus, we used the "Rainbow Birds" so anyone behind the bus could not help but smile!
Jalpak was so great to us and we were able to spend a couple of days in Waikiki and even had the chance to see the bus rolling down Kalakaua Ave after the blessing, it was so neat to see my art in that size and on wheels! I want to sincerely thank everyone at Jalpak Hawaii and JAL who made this project happen, Mahalo Nui Loa!
