I've been working on this painting for about 3 months, and I decided last night that today I would finally put the finishing touches on it. I woke up this morning to the news that Rob Ford had passed away. So my mild mockery of the mayor has become a tribute, Tribute to the Anti Graffiti Mayor.
I have fond memories of Rob Ford because I was working at Global News during his days of debauchery and he made life in the graphics department very exciting. I have spent an inordinate amount of time looking at Rob Ford's face, but I love the creativity and humour that Toronto artists retaliated with. This mural of the mayor decorates Kensington market.
