Those of you aquainted with the wild boar’s habits know that I love to roam the internet, always in search of talented artists, as much in literature as in fine arts. One of my most awesome encounters (just in the virtual world up to now, to my greatest regret) has been the one with Amber Jahn aka jahnniegirl, a San Diego-based artist that made an appearance in the wild boar’s den on multiple occasions.
Some days ago I learned that she is right now involved in an amazing project : Creating the murals for Kilowatt Brewing’s second location in Ocean Beach, 1875 Cable Street, due to open in early 2017.
There are some photos of this work in progress on Amber’s Facebook page (which I strongly suggest you visit), but to get an idea of the way things were and how they are now, I took the liberty of compiling some shots into an impression of before / during and (almost) after Amber’s painting campaign :
As the first one is taken from Google’s Streetview project, the angle is not quiet the same, but I think it comes across. And you will of course recognize the details like the lamp over the door or the downpipe next to it.
The first steps toward the creation of this second location have been at least partially crowd-funded by a campaign on Indigogo, where a second one has just been launched :
We are launching this Phase 2 Campaign to help us complete the rest of the projects we have designed for our Ocean Beach tasting room, including […] custom designed patio panels by local artists
So why not engage and help sponsor some local artists like Amber ? I bet even the finest brew will taste better in this kind of awesome environment :-)
