715 neighbors want Seven by Siete by 七 by Pito by Bảy by семь by Sept on Muni in San Francisco.

Proposal
When you hear a poem it's always interesting to see where your mind goes. What images you see. Sometimes you think of something outside of yourself. Sometimes you remember something from your own experience. 

In this first poem To a Student by Diane Di Prima, I didn't get it at first. Then it hit me. Poetry communicates life lessons. We're often not old enough to want to listen to them yet however. That's what I wanted to show in my piece. A young woman is preoccupied with life. Too much so to hear the lesson. Later in time she's experienced ups and downs and is ready to accept the wisdom with open arms. 

Through the other five selected poems I look forward to telling their stories through the diverse characters of the Bay Area. Visually this will be done through loose sweeping curves, bright colors, and geometric design. The title is based on San Francisco's 7x7mile area using the Top 7 most spoken languages in the bay.

I first saw Donavon's spectacular, flowing, individualistic art and style in Florida when we were both studying in college. His work continues to advance, inspire, and impress me to this day. I always appreciate seeing such talent.
