secret wars Jan 09 almost done
Almost at the end of the first wall in the competition.

Secret Wars is no your usual graffiti battle and is like watching to comic artists go head to head. So something a little different to report on today but it’s really interesting to me especially the possibilities for my creative practice.

I really think this would be a lot of fun to do and although these are a hybrid graffiti/drawing/painting style some of the other competitors go for almost a straight literal illustrative approach.

Toe to toe as the time counts down.

Competitors have 90 minutes to complete there piece with black markers, brushes and rollers, many opt for the marker for the battle but on the other wall they were using brushes.

We have a winner!

In a very close call the winner, whose piece you can see behind him on the right is selected. There are two judges and a crowd choice made by a decibel reader.
