Smartmouth Brewing Co. invited me to do a chalk mural earlier this month. These are usually switched out every few months and are based on events or a new beer release. I was given the theme “Alter Ego” based on one of Smartmouth’s year round flavor of beers.

My initial thoughts were to do something portrait based where you could match characters up. A few things popped into my mind, one being a childhood game called Guess Who?, the card game Old Maid, and Where’s Waldo - a children’s puzzle book.

I decided to lean more in the direction of the board game idea and drew out squares that would be filled with one character in a normal or settled pose that could then be matched up with their alter-ego. 

In the mural that's completed you’ll find a singer or musician, a chef, a superhero, and finally the Smartmouth mascot.

I enjoyed working on the mural and it’ll be up until Memorial Day. Thanks Smartmouth!
