Big Rock Cock

Big Rock invited me to work on a mural of their distressed cock logo for a spot in their main space. They want a big round mural to the right of the skylight above the doors. This is the view front he second floor landing a the top of their stairs.
I created a variety of samples for them to choose from.
Each one has different aspects I thought they may like.
The first two are conservative, using their logo with their brown and red pantone colours.
The next are black with gold and red over the brown with a release technique to distress it further.
Here is the one on the right once some of the red paint is peeled away to reveal the brown underneath.
On the next two I decided to try something a bit different, the first, on the right is inspired by the old traditional label and the one on the right is the base layer to create a bottle cap design.
Here is is with a variety of washes and layers to achieve various looks.
On the right you can see how the black layer is removed to reveal the silver and red underpainting.

The Calgary Stampede and exhibition has arrived so my city and this project is on hold until the debauchery ends and the town sobers up. I look forward to hearing from Big Rock what they are interested in.
