I just saw that the Daily Register ran this story yesterday and it’s a project that I’m really excited about. This Spring, I’ll be working on a large mural in Point Pleasant to commemorate the Silver Bridge. Last month marked 50 years since its tragic collapse and I’m honored to get to paint the 13’x32’ (approx) mural on the flood wall where the bridge once stood.

Similar to my streetcar mural last year and the Sadd Bros. storefront/West Washington Street scene mural I’m fin...ishing up now for Gonzoburger, my concept is to paint a fairly realistic depiction of the scene but stylized as to portray it as someone’s recollection as opposed to a simple illustration of the past. I aim to capture some of the rich history as well as a sense the life that you get in the emotional connection to memories. I want to convey a sense of the life as well as the fleeting moment. You can expect to see authentic and faithful details in my nearly life-size depiction of the bridge itself along with some other subtle touches to the scene that you won’t find in photographs.

Check out this article for a few more details. After getting the privilege of being at the 50th anniversary ceremony, having my design mock-up unveiled, hearing from the local community and people who lost loved ones in the tragedy, and visiting the fantastic Point Pleasant River Museum, my heart is definitely tied to it, too.

This is a time lapse video of me working on my latest mural, a "you are here" map of the Fayette County area on the wall of the waiting area in the Fayetteville Pies & Pints. You'll see how I used transparency films to project different layers of the map that I made in Photoshop, traced from Google Earth to make an accurate rendering. I wasn't able to capture the last few hours of work when I painted the logo and some touch-ups due to customer traffic, but I included a shot of the finished piece. The design was a collaboration with the Pies founder.

Because we’re often surprised by or don’t even see what’s stuck inside and why it might be afraid to come out.

“My first job was at Bowles Rice in the copy center. I did art on the side, random things like, ‘Can you do this portrait of my grandpa?’ I was that guy at the office who can draw stuff. I still get some of that here."

The big picture.That’s how artist Jesse Corlis sees his art. Forget dainty brushes and minuscule details. He paints with broad strokes on surfaces as tall and wide as as a movie screen. He paints and draws all kinds of stuff. Most artists do. But he found his special niche as a muralist. Attracted t...

This was a fun mural I just finished for a little boy's new bedroom. I wanted to design something that was unique and had a more personal/local connection than a big store bought poster. And I wanted to make something that the 3yo kid will still like when he's 16. Hopefully he'll notice new details as he grows up.
Thank you to amazing interior designer Laura McCutcheon for having the idea to do a map and for bringing me in to design and create it.

White Elephant Saloon mural No. 12 for Pies and Pints. This is for the new location about to open in Kenwood, OH. Always a whirlwind of nearly nonstop work over a weekend, but always a blast.
