Behind The NEU Mural

A Ginormous Email Thread Discussion


For the 3rd straight year Project SF painted the Northeastern University Spring Fest mural. This year was a super heroes theme (NICE!) and the group began discussing ideas (with a tangent here or there) in a lengthy email thread.

A Sketch of Ideas That Rose To The Top


Next comes the initial sketch and the Hulk smash was the unanimous favorite. After getting the focal point nailed down the rest falls into place. Lettering, super hero renditions in our own styles and lighting are the next elements picked. Last but not least: choosing the right palate of hero colors. A black base is key for getting spray paint to jump off the panels, all colors are up for grabs and we mostly riff off of Hulk green skin tones and shades of his purple pants.

Build & Buff The Panels


After a trip to the lumber yard and an afternoon assembling the wall on the driveway, the sketch is thrown up on the 6 panels to nail down the initial spacing. This always proves to be a huge help when the event comes; it's one less thing to think about and on the day of the event we can get right to work focusing on fine tuning.

Get to work


An all day affair gets going mid morning when we set up the panels and pray it doesn't rain. Once we have the whole thing standing it's time to get to work. You can only plan so far, you have to have fun with it and work with each other listening to suggestions and painting at your own pace. It's a long, fun-filled, fume-y day

Keep going, keep painting, keep workin' it


Crowds come and go as we paint. Somebody brought us a case of energy drinks and some tiny pizzas to keep our minds sharp. A few clouds formed, but no rain came our way.


Call it a day


By 5 o'clock we all take a step back and call it a day. The mural goes on stage each year for the Spring Fest concert and remains on campus for the rest of the year. It was a blast meeting students and creating a comic book inspired mural all day long along side awesome artists and great friends. I only wish I could have brought my 13 year old self to the event to see what was in his future.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
