While in the class, I pulled this print, and was convinced it was garbage. My class mates and oohed and aahed and all I could see were the mistakes. Mono type is a medium full of surprises and one that takes me way out of my comfort zone.

What is Mission Artists United?
Mission Artists United is a bunch of Mission Artists who got together in 2009 to create a forum where we could cross promote each other, brag about our neighborhood, and find opportunities to further our artistic work together.
The Mission has the highest concentration of working artist in the Bay area and we just flat out love our neighborhood and all it has to offer. We knew if could demonstrate the diversity and richness of our art district to the city and to the world, that would be good for all our aspirations. Imagine how thrilled we were to grow from that group of 10 artists to over 500 active users on this site in less than 2 years!
