Proposed Mural for the Ivanhoe Village Offices

Scottie Campbell the Executive Director of the Ivanhoe Village District asked me to consider doing a mural on the facade of the Fringe and Ivanhoe Village offices. The building was painted black which makes the offices a furnace in the summer. I created this composite sketch to suggest an overview of downtown on the facade. There wasn't a working budget for the project, so George Fringe Wallace created a Power2Give fundraising page to raise the $5000 for the mural's creation.

I like the idea that anyone in the community can contribute a small amount to make this idea a reality. As of this writing 2% of the needed funds have been raised. In 80 or so days I find out if this project will become a reality. Donor benefits include...
$1-99, a personal thank you on the Orlando Fringe and Ivanhoe Village Facebook pages.
$100-249, a digital photograph of the mural once it is completed (plus the above benefits)
$250-499, an invitation to the public unveiling of the mural, including a meet and greet with Fringe  and Ivanhoe Village Executives and the artist himself, Thomas Thorspecken. (plus the above benefits)
$500 or more, a plaque at the site of the mural with your name on it as a donor (plus the above benefits)

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
