The Muralist — Shawn Kerri Part 4

This is probably one of Shawn Kerri’s last works and the largest she did to my knowledge. Judging from the billiard table standing in front of it, the mural should be at least 12m long.

It’s a mural Kerri painted in 1996 for Effin’s Pub & Grill in San Diego, which opened that same year. It represents a typical crowd with some references to college life and alcohol in the cartoonist strokes that Kerri excelled in.

Effin’s Pub & Grill sits a little South of the San Diego State University (SDSU) campus and is a go-to bar for their students; reason why ‘SDSU’ figures also prominently on one of the characters’ t-shirts.






And another of Kerri’s drawings that decorates Effin’s Pub & Grill’ walls:


For everyone that doesn’t live close enough to visit this mural, google.maps offers an inside look into the pub.

Many thanks to Dennis Quick for letting me know about this work.
