“One huge difference between drawing on paper versus on a wall is the use of the body in a physical sense. You can hide a sketchbook in your lap, or quickly make 10 little drawings; but when you are working on a mural, you use your whole body to draw. I also find that ‘conquering’ something bigger than you is very freeing and therapeutic. I also try to take into consideration how my design will work together with the shape of the wall, or with the architecture or the surrounding environment.”
