Giant Spiders Overtake Roof
Seattle artist and science illustrator Marlin Peterson was recently commissioned by the Washington State Parks Commission to paint a mural somewhere in the city. After having trouble finding a big enough wall, he decided to look for a large roof and where would a painting on a roof be more visiable than right underneath the Seattle Space Needle? After reaching an agreement with the Seattle Center Armory, Peterson started work on two Daddy-long leg spiders using a technique called trompe l’oeil which gives the illusion when seen from above that giant spiders have overtaken the building. Pretty cool.
