Making Murals: Graffiti Design on the Homefront

If I were to draw all over the long white western wall of my living room, I would take inspiration from the great graffiti artists from Bristol to Bondi. With a thin black marker, drawing in one continuous line, I would illustrate the details of the tropical garden just outside my window. Then on top of the vegetation, I would paint giant green cicadas smoking cigars dancing with purple care bears wearing slogan T-shirts emblazoned with the words 'Hot diggity zappo, baby, can you dig it?'
