Project: Sun ‘Fun’cisco
Collaborative mural project with Forest “Draweverywhere” Stearns
On the first floor of the building of GitHub HQ in San Francisco, CA, there’s a daycare/kids’ area which is placed in between windows facing the street and a white rounded wall about 30 meters wide and 4 meters tall which felt quite overwhelming. (It’s the back side of the famous oval office). It was obvious that it needed something playful and welcoming.
I started drawing on my sketchbook randomly and came up with the idea of San ‘Fun’cisco. There are endless possibilities in the world and we wanted to encourage creativity and the sense of adventure with the artwork. The story starts with the cityscape of San Francisco, and to the bay and a beach/island offshore having a bonfire with magical creatures.
