That’ll Do Pig, That’ll Do

I am honored to say that I have created some little piggies… well, they’re not really that little.

I was asked to come and take a look at a large wall in a place that will soon become a Pensacola icon. Global Grill’s new restaurant called Urban Swinery is scheduled to open sometime this year and have asked me to create some pieces of art for their wall.

After meeting with them and Studio Pica to discuss the look and feel of the new restaurant, I fell in love with the project.

It was on, I was going to create some giant pigs… something that I actually hadn’t done yet.

This was a fun project and I worked with some amazingly creative people to finish what I consider some amazing pieces that I am very proud of.

All I can really say is “That’ll do pig, that’ll do.
