Need inspiration for college kids

Post by Staley on Tue Jul 19, 2016 8:07 pm

We have two events coming up this fall at a college. One is being put on by the college and one is a big tailgating event. Obviously we will have plenty of the school colors on hand and maybe make up a couple of stencils for the mascot (Central Missouri State =mule head). At other events we don't get a lot of college age kids so I need inspiration for both guys and gals. Thanks in advance.

sports (i.e flaming football, soccer, etc).

graffiti designs, gaming characters, person's initials or name, school logo, sorority/fraternity letters or mascots?

LOVE my frequent gig at a local Univ. If it's a game (you said tailgating) you MAY, like me, get local, staff & student families. Kids want the usual. Fans like the school colors, LOGO, mascot & flaming ball(soccer, football, basketball etc.). If it's a school fair, you'll get a lot of adventurous students. Many let me get creative & I'm able to try some of my best new ideas, or just go off the grid & blossom. I do keep my picture book in my backpack & take it out only if asked for it. They're fascinated by my Craft-N-Go Paint Station! Here's a few pics. There's more under a thread called "unusual requests".




On the feather...she didn't want anything on her forehead. (Hot in Florida) but just below the picture, she had a feather on her necklace.

I always find that teens to adults go completely off-piste and mainly rely on requests!

Kids like ideas and pictures but adults have their own ideas. The generic requests I get are 'something pretty by my eye' =BAMS Swirls using tag pearl wine, blush and gold with double dip flowers. 'Something cool' = tribal eye or flaming skull eye/half face.
