In 2002 we were commissioned to paint a mural for the CDC El Cajon. We were asked to depict something for the rebirth of downtown El Cajon. The inspiration came to us as the Bird of Paradise, out of the ashes rebirth! It was a fun project that gave us a chance to show off our fine art side and do some airbrushing “in plein air”.
We make a ton of signs, banners, wraps, but this was an opportunity to do something that brought beauty into our world. It was painted in an alley way that people walked when going from a parking lot to the theater. I always imagined it would be a great surprise, turning a corner and being greeted by a colorful mural.
Do you an area that needs a fresh look? Maybe something that uplift your store or neighborhood? Give us a call we’d love to help you out!
Ribbon cutting time!
“Man, thats a big wall!”
Bird of Paradise painted for the CDC City of El Cajon in 2002! Part of an overall plan to bring more art and beautify downtown El Cajon. A mural project out and away from the studio, it was a lot of fun and turned out great!

We work with some great people and last week had the opportunity to work with the folks at Non Verbal Communications. Their client, the Kona Kai Resort, needed a mural painted behind a metal ship sculpture to match a logo. We were there from 8:30 pm to 11:00 pm to keep us out of the way of the customers. We used stencils and air brushes to create the desired finish of a rough weathered texture. We think it turned out great!
A fun project we just completed is a 25′ sphere for the Winter Olympics. “Welcome” is written in 12 different languages all around the sphere and has a color fade from dark blue to light green behind white lettering. This large project took almost 100 people hours to complete and was made for Interactive Inflatables, Inc. Watch a video of the painting process from start to finish here, Welcome Sphere
