Sight Seeing: San Francisco Edition
San Francisco is known for its diversity in its cultures, neighborhoods, people, landscape, art, music – the list is long. However, often not considered is the diversity of animals that share our communities. My proposal for the Muni-Art Project is to showcase this diversity through portrait drawings of wildlife over a map of the San Francisco neighborhood where it is commonly found. For example, a Sea Lion over Fisherman’s Wharf or a Red Tail Hawk in Golden Gate Park or a Yellowtail Fish in Japantown. Like the different neighborhoods in San Francisco, each piece will be unique through the subject, color and map location – but like the city as a whole, the series will be cohesive through my illustration style and the project’s art direction. Using this formula, Muni buses will be sprinkled with color, style and art that is unique to our amazing city.
