Artist Wrestling League

Feral Mad Dog Bueller vs. Crabby Jack (I forget which one is which as well as what they were supposed to be painting) battled along with what I assumed were their handlers.  While in the ring the art brawlers painted what the announcers selected based upon what they liked shouted out by the crowd, but some of them were also out painting some beautiful murals along with the other artists that I will be featuring soon.  There was a challenge from the audience by two little children who wanted to take down the winner of the aforementioned match (sister was coaching her brother) with the subject being a Dr. Seuss monkey.  Of course the young ones won that battle 😉

(Urban Scrawl is a 2 day arts festival organized by the Franklington Arts District showcasing the live creation of some amazing and beautiful murals by artists from Central Ohio and beyond.  The event has grown each year with this year’s festival having a first.  The completed murals are being made available for purchase at the Art for Franklinton fundraiser auction to benefit the Franklinton Arts District’s new George Bellows Artist Grants program.  Murals that aren’t part of the fundraiser auction will be weather-sealed and mounted publicly in the neighborhood in cooperation with local businesses to help enliven the community of Franklinton, Central Ohio’s historic first settlement.  Now how cool is that!)

        I wish I had seen the ladies “brawling” that would’ve been good! 🙂
