MAW Productions Mural 2021

It was an honor to be a part of Paint Memphis 2 years in a row. Last year, we painted Shinobi: Ninja Princess on a 10x20ft canvas. This year, we switched it up a bit and painted Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa in her redesigned suit. Again, this mural was 10x20ft and took us 17 hours over 3 days! It was exhausting but it was also so much fun. This years event took place on October 9, 2021.660 South BB King Memphis, TN. If you are in town, you've got to stop by and see the awesome murals from artist from around the country. Thanks to Paint Memphis for allowing us to take part again this year.
