Muni Art Project 2017

Great White Beach by Todd Kurnat

Sight Seeing: SF Edition debuts on Muni Buses this week.

I’m happy to announce my art hits the streets this week on a bunch of Muni Buses citywide. If you’re in San Francisco during the next few months, get yourself on a Muni Bus to peep my new art series called Sight Seeing: San Francisco Edition featuring illustrated portraits of wildlife over the neighborhood they are commonly found in.

The series is part of the Muni Art Project – kicking off this week. Thanks to SF Beautiful for curating this unique experience for The City.

If you wanna get a nice look at the full series of 8 panels, head on over to my portfolio site here.

About the art:

Many Moods is a new series of spontaneous, sharpie drawings on repurposed paper from Todd Kurnat. Part exploration. Part experimentation. And 100% improv. For this exercise, Todd pairs down his tools to only a stack of sharpies, allowing him to free his mind and let his subconscious pen exploit lines, shapes and patterns. Each mark made inspired the next – feeding the flow of ink and the motion of his hand. Ultimately chasing the rush of seeing something he had never seen before.

Art On The Farm

A detail of Tk's NY Mural

This past week I was in upstate New York visiting family.

While there I had the distinct pleasure of painting a mural on the barn door at the Purple Gunder Farm in Berne. Thanks to Tori for setting this up. Oskar for picking the first color. And Trudy for letting me leave my mark on her barn door. Oh yea, and Zephyr for keeping me company while painting.

Exotic Snot And Other Abstractions

Exotic Snot by Tk at The Broken Record

A new art series from Tk will be hanging around The Broken Record Bar deep into the summer.

Exotic Snot and Other Abstractions is an experiment in format, process and deviation from the plan, man. This moment-in-time features original ink drawings, scanned, enlarged, printed and ultimately collaged and abused into place. Fully embellished with color and movement.

The Broken Record Bar

The Broken Record is a unique and local, dive bar down in the Excelsior of San Francisco. What makes this spot so unique? Well, besides having a killer whiskey selection, it also has a grill in the back called Hood Grub where they serve up all kinds comfort food. This spot would fit well into the Portland bar scene (where the city requires every bar to have a kitchen). Don’t take my word for it. Go check it out for yourself. In fact, make a night of it.

Paris and Italy

Rooster of Paris

This past week I finished up a two part commission – Rooster of Paris and Tyrhhenian Orca.

I had a great time putting together these two commissions for Patrick Pernice (Founder of He is a big fan of art, maps and the Sight Seeing Series. He chose the locations and I did the rest. Thanks to Patrick for supporting art in our community and mine in particular!

Tyrhhenian Orca

Also note these beautiful, box frames by my friend Jeff Petersen. Custom made to fit these two meditating dudes. You can check out Jeff’s work (alongside mine) over at Cafe Royale for the next month or so.
