Momentum Worldwide contacted us a month out from ComiCon wanting to place create 3 murals with the hashtag #spaceclones of the adorable alien conqueror Marvin the Martian. The murals and hashtag were in support of the Funko pop up shop in San Diego’s Gaslamp District for ComiCon 2017.
Anything ComiCon related is planned almost a year in advance which didn’t give us much time to do site checks, negotiate and get building owner permissions including permits. Our in-house artist had all 3 murals done in a week right before the start of ComiCon.
Quick on our feet! A tight deadline and a lot of back and forth with the client of where we could and couldn’t place murals once we sourced available walls. We worked with the city to OK all of our locations, then we had 1 week to paint all 3. There was 2 days per mural for it all to be completed the day before ComiCon kicked off.
