"shane white" "starbucks" "lineart" "illustration" "mural" "cheshire inn" "st. louis" "missouri"

Starbucks asked me at the end of Summer if I’d be interested in creating a mural for their Cheshire Inn location in St. Louis Missouri. I’d never done a commercial mural before so, why the heck not? I submitted several comps after our initial meeting and they were pleased with many of them. However, they settled on this old-school lineart treatment reminiscent of illustration from the early 20th century.

It was weird doing it all digitally though. Kind of polar opposites and yet…I could try a lot different ideas and finally commit to one. For my money I would have liked it if the line style was consistent throughout, but they liked the comp with more variety and so this was the result.
