Variety means the artist thinks!

We tend to believe that if a person does one thing, well, they MUST be good at it, right? If they do more than one thing, well, they’re ok at this and that, but…they’re not an expert, right?

Wisdom is derived from experiences. It’s simple, really–the more experiences, well, the more wisdom. That’s how I see it, at least.

The point? Celebrate when you find an artist who can do more than one style. It means they can bend–bending is good. See lots of bending and more at http://mcfarlandillustration.com — today!

Every Client Is Different, So Every Solution Is Unique

Some clients infrequently use artwork and often like to work with one artist that can create using different styles. Michael McFarland is such an artist. “Professionally I create to please the client. Personally I create to satisfy my curiosity. I’m curious if I can create something that has never been seen before,” says Michael. Having worked for clients for more than 35 years, his broad skills and busy schedule shows it.

While Create a Mural?

A communication tool.

Whether residential or commercial, few items communicate better than a mural–and they do it 24-7. Visuals of size are both striking and great at telling a story. From using just images to a mixture of type, graphics and art, a mural is often one of the most affordable marketing tools for companies today, and a great show-stopper for the home.

Vinyl rather than paint.

As both an artist and marketer, I prefer vinyl mural to someone painting on my wall. For one, there is no scheduling of the artist to the site, so interruptions are minimal. Two, with Michael McFarland Studio of Fine Art, you can view the image in both B&W and color via a laptop before it is applied. This avoids surprises with  just how the final will look. Further, the artist doesn’t feel ‘rushed’. A rushed artist may not examine the work as closely as if it were made in the studio. The pressure to ‘move along’ so the interruption of having an artist finish up is not there with the vinyl printed mural, and a tighter image is more certain the result. The power of Adobe Photoshop may be used when creating murals to print as wallpaper onto vinyl. When printed out, the printing company often will be the installer as well. Often, installations may take merely a few hours and the results using Michael McFarland Studio of Fine Art are always stunning.
