Charlie Johnston: "This is a return to a lot of the stuff I used to do as a signpainter; and a
reaffirmation that the skills that I had learned were still valid. Castrol, who was the
client, wanted a racecar represented boldly and dynamically. The previous Mural at this
location (see RIP section, same address) was also for Castrol, but it was very static and
not pictorial. They had seen my work for Canada Auto (see 1688 St. Matthews) and they
wanted something done of a comparable quality."
"The thing that was a bit different for me in this one is that the layout design was digitally
rendered. In most other cases I lay the design out by hand."
