This is my most recent mural. It's on the side of the Crab House restaurant located at Charleston's Market on the State St. side. It was not terribly difficult to get through the City's approval process with the condition that the owner remove a cartoon crab painted above their entry. Because of the city's sign ordinance, I could not use the restaurant's name on the mural, but as I often feel, some text would make it a better piece. Particularly, because the inspiration for the piece was the graphic art on fruit and produce crates. The building was used by a produce wholesaler in the 1950's and the produce was unloaded from the train tracks just on the side of this wall. Both the composition and the retro typeface were derived from the hundreds of produce labels I looked at on the internet. It's wonderful to be able to access all the images, but I never actually copy anything preferring to re-interpret the feel of the originals.
