It's the Biggest America that an American Ever Painted of America!


Allen, Texas artist Tanner Lawley is painting the hell out of North America in a project called "UNIFIED, We Stand."

He began work on July 4th (duh) attacking one state per day, each on a 4'X4' canvas, at this scheduled rate he'll have the entire project completed by late August. When united, his additions will form a mural of this nation that stretches proudly at 20' tall by 40' wide. It's going to be a record. If you want to pitch in just hit up his kickstarter. Tanner Lawley, we salute you.
