Roughies mural - Floyd
Floyd just lost a couple of toes to gangrene/mismanagement of his condition. He suffered a head injury in a work accident and seems to be falling through the cracks of the system. Eg he's been waiting forever for a place to live.
He calls Rough Edges, the people who go there, his family. I've done a few drawings of him there, so he asked me to paint his portrait in a space on the mural on the front wall. Here it is .
The panel with Floyd
Stephen Corry, who designed the mural and painted a lot of it too, with the help of the Roughies community. I did a couple of other small panels a couple of weeks ago
