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.
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?
