New Mural for Remnant Brewing

Midway through May, I wrapped up work on a new mural for Remnant Brewing designed by my friend and collaborator, David Buckley Borden. David designed an abstracted soil profile with various objects buried within representing the history of brewing, Massachusetts, Somerville, and more.

I hopped on the project in November and began working out how to cover this hundred-year-old decrepit cinder block wall with paint. 25 gallons of masonry waterproofing were applied by hand over 70 hours at the beginning of April. After that, the fun began. Check out some pictures of the process below.



This wall challenged me in so many ways, but in the end it was worth it, especially for all the free beer from Remnant. Big thanks to David Kushner for his support and vision with the project.
