"Ritz Printers" 1997 - a mural by Lance Russwurm - acrylic on concrete block

To explain this mural, I'll let the client do the talking:

"The illustration ... is a photo of the mural painted on our north wall by renowned Kitchener-Waterloo artist Lance Russwurm in September, 1997. It shows Great Uncle Dan Ritz, Grandfather Otto Ritz at the Linotype and Great-Grandfather Jacob at the hand-fed platen press. We're thrilled with the historical accuracy and detail! We asked Lance for a mural to advertise our business to the traffic moving by on the street. He gave us, instead, a pictorial celebration of our past!"

 


I have been an artist/illustrator working out of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario for many years. I tend to specialize in historical and mechanical subject  matter, but I also enjoy doing portraits, murals, airbrush jobs or anything else that comes up. I work mostly in acrylics, oils, watercolours, graphite and ink. I can  take a photo if I have to, and can also do a bit of photo-retouching...but, mostly, I do things the traditional way.
