That @rt$y Sh!t: Mural Proposal

by Katelyn Block on August 6, 2012 · 5 comments

My last project for the drawing class I took this summer was a mural proposal. The mission was to design a mural that would capture the essence of Rochester’s 19th Ward, a historic neighborhood that has been in place since the early 1800′s.

The concept I used for my design was taking the idea of a coffee shop and making it into a representation of the neighborhood as a whole; warm and welcoming, with a strong sense of community.

In progress.

The final piece turned out better than I was expecting. My personal drawing style is very cartoon-y. I loved how this was both slightly open to interpretation, yet very clearly a coffee-shop environment.

What would you do with the same project?
Thoughts on the piece?

Looks great Katelyn!

I wish I could draw like that….If I had to do a project like that, there would be a lot of stick figures involved. And if I drew a coffee cup, it’d be so bad someone would mistake it for a car or something.

I didn’t realize you’re in Rochester! I’m honestly just booking travel there for work in October!
