Aaron De La Cruz x Sam Rodriguez

I finally did a mural collaboration with my long time friend and now family member Aaron De La Cruz. We often see one another through non-art related friends and family gatherings and have always kept a project collaboration on the back burner. Years later, we finally had the chance to set some time aside to put something special together and it was an amazing experience. I learned a lot about letting go of my process habits through the give and take that is required to form a well balanced collaborative project. More importantly, the community of all ages in San Francisco's Excelsior district where Aaron and his family lives, showed so much love to us during the process. It was a positive and motivating couple of days. Big thanks Aaron De La Cruz & family who despite being sick still came out to work. Hope to do many more.

Mural Location: Mission St. & Onondaga Ave. in San Francisco, California
