Since 2012, artist Jeff Sonksen has been painting fence after fence on the Seminole Wekiva Trail near Orlando, Florida.
Today, the project that has come to be known as Paint The Trail, features over 2 miles of artwork featuring colorful celebrities, inspirational quotes, famous movie lines, and other eye catching pop art. Paint The Trail has now been covered by several news outlets and is being enjoyed by thousands of people who go to the trail to take in this ongoing project. Jeff told us he’s not stopping until he has painted 5 miles!
When we came across Jeff’s artwork online, we though Paint The Trail would be a fun and creative way to raise more awareness on the Porn Kills Love movement. We reached out to Jeff to see if he would be willing to throw Fight the New Drug up on the trail, and he was more than willing!
We were also impressed to learn that Jeff doesn’t take a dollar for his work on the trail. All of his work is done from out of his own pocket, some donations, and by using recycled wood and paint. Jeff is much like us in the fact that he does what he does because he loves it and he wants to make a difference!
Check out the video we made of Jeff’s entire painting process of the giant #PornKillsLove tribute that he created, from beginning to end!
Big thanks to Jeff for the great work he does and go show him some love on Facebook!
