Paint the Pearl: The Pointy End Pawn

This mural is located behind the Pointy End Pawn Shop at 212 East Second Street, downtown Muscatine.

I enjoyed painting it and seeing how a sign can be functional and artistic. Many people laugh and smile as they pass, but nobody parks in that spot!

The design was brought to me by the owner, and I tried my best to recreate it. There were many layers, and it was challenging, but I feel very good about how it ended up looking!

Here’s a quote from the owner: “I’m very pleased with what Chris was able to accomplish. It’s very accurate to the design, and I love driving downtown and seeing it as I pass by.”
