Caleb Neelon http://calebneelon.com Wed, 20 Aug 2014 15:15:49 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.2 Big new mural, Denholm Building, downtown Worcester, MA. http://calebneelon.com/2014/08/big-new-mural-denholm-building-downtown-worcester-ma/ http://calebneelon.com/2014/08/big-new-mural-denholm-building-downtown-worcester-ma/#comments Wed, 20 Aug 2014 13:35:50 +0000 http://calebneelon.com/?p=1549 Read More]]> At 44 feet tall and 120 feet long, this mural is probably my biggest one yet, and all the more special to me in that I got to do it in my home state of Massachusetts. It’s called “The Block Player” and inspired by watching my toddler daughter build and play. Thanks to everyone who made this possible, especially Erin and the PAWG, the Worcester Rotary Club, Converse, my magnificent assistant and buddy Jimbo, and many more. There will be a video soon – stay tuned.

Tobin School, Boston, with Katie Yamasaki http://calebneelon.com/2014/08/tobin-school-boston-with-katie-yamasaki/ http://calebneelon.com/2014/08/tobin-school-boston-with-katie-yamasaki/#comments Sun, 10 Aug 2014 11:02:59 +0000 http://calebneelon.com/?p=1527 Read More]]> For the past five of so years, I’ve spent a couple of weekend days a year as part of a service project landscaping and generally keeping up the exterior of the Tobin Elementary School on Boston’s Mission Hill. It’s in a beautiful location, just across a lovely park from the Mission Church, one of Boston’s most special churches. I did my first large mural on this corner entry of the school in 2009, and five years on, it was time to give the new generation of students something that they could identify with as their own mural for their own era at the school. I brought in my many-time collaborator Katie Yamasaki and it was on. Big thank you to Converse for making this possible.

Blade: King of Graffiti http://calebneelon.com/2014/08/blade-king-of-graffiti/ http://calebneelon.com/2014/08/blade-king-of-graffiti/#comments Sun, 10 Aug 2014 10:53:45 +0000 http://calebneelon.com/?p=1522 I had the honor and pleasure to write the foreword to Blade’s long-awaited retrospective book. Blade did graffiti that looked fun, and when I saw his work in Subway Art years ago, I wanted in, too.
