This project was commissioned by Indoor Extreme Sports of Queens. They recently started doing archery tag as one of their play options and wanted something to spruce up that section of the location with the right theme. Also got to play a few games of it and had a ridiculous amount of fun.

Basically I did a sketch of the figures, painted them in, and then using spray paints, I did the various build up of the camo print in the background. The pink was the request of the owner, as much of the other areas are a darker color and theme, so he wanted something very light in this area. At first I was a little hesitant, but in the long run it does look pretty cool.

The figures first:

And then the full layout (as well as I could photograph) of the wall.

Another aspect of the archery tag is that there is a blacklight part of the game where the arrowheads (the large foam bumpers) glow in the dark, as do the zombies that are coming after you,… yes that’s right, glow in the dark zombie archery tag. Mind BLOWN! Which is also amazingly fun.

To make the imagery of the mural visible while the black-lights are on, we ordered some black-light paint, and I got to do some simple highlighting with it. Didn’t want the whole wall to be glowing, just a little something there which looked cool.
Unfortunately, black-light paint does not photograph all that well with my camera, so I took these shots and then did a little image adjustment afterwards so you can see a little better. Still not super clear, but understandable. It looks better in person, but you get the idea.
