Darth Vader Graffiti

Description

Prestress - hidden in trees behind Sunset Point, a picturesque pier off of Lake Pontchartrain. Acres and acres of land, paved over, riddled with various decayed concrete structures, and abandoned for 40 years after the completion of the Causeway Bridge, the longest bridge over water in the world. Needless to say, Prestress is paradise for urban explorers and graffiti artists.

My friends and I have been going there for a while, after all, it's insanely awesome. Surrounded by trees, it could be mistaken for a post-apocalyptic world. The only signs of life - the ever changing graffiti. Several of my friends do work on Prestress's walls, and I've always wanted to try my hand at it.

Recently, someone whitewashed a prominent wall and redid the entire area. Visiting that section with my friend Janae gave me the drive to finally attempt my hand at vandalism. Two days later, I was out there with a sketch on paper, two cans of spraypaint, a piece of chalk, a couple brushes, two jars of acrylic paint, and a huge-ass waterbottle. I was out there for a little over four hours and have the sunburns to prove it.

The whole time while painting this, I hummed the Imperial March.
