I painted this mural recently for the Francisco Middle School Library. My message was to remind these kids that wisdom and ideas still come from these crazy things called books.

Francisco Middle School has been serving North Beach and Chinatown families for nearly 100 years (since 1925). One fun fact is that Joe DiMaggio attended school here back in the day. Besides the marvelous book & graphic novel collection, the library plays host to all kinds of activities from music and video production to arts, crafts and hands-on projects of all kind.

Thank you to the librarian for making this project happen. My mother worked in libraries when I was a little kid, which made this a real pleasure to work on.
