    Okay I was in a rush because I gotta drive to Palm Springs, but here's a few cool ones off the Pershing Square stop in Downtown Los Angeles.



    An old one, Victor Clothing Mural, 3rd & Broadway.



    Winston & Main



    An alley off of Winston. The gate was locked that is usually open and it was too high to hop so I had to take a pic through the bars. I think it's part of an old street installation next to a yoga studio because there's a shopping cart painted gold and locked to the fence.



    Winston & Los Angeles. I kinda love this one even with all the tags on top. Here's a close up:







    This one on Main near 5th is ginormous.

    I'll take a car tour when I get back from Palm Springs Sunday. There are some absolute STUNNING murals in East LA on the side of mom and pop liquor stores. Hell, maybe Palm Springs has some murals.

    Wow. Just wow. The suburbanites here in Dallas/Fort Worth with their draconian anti-graffiti laws tip their hat to you for posting such amazing shots. I think the second one from the top is my favorite.

    Have fun in Palm Springs!
    And thanks for the recommendation on "Spirited Away". I've never seen it, but will be adding to my Netflix queue.

    Howl's Magic Castle is another good one in the same genre!

    These are fantastic, Crystal! I too love the one with the big eyeballs. Those colors are awesome together. Wow, that giant troll-faced tutu wearing figure is cool.

    Can't wait to see more. Thanks for posting these.

    I took a picture of this to remember my walk to my bus stop in Berlin last year. Somewhere on landsberger allee.

    I love this.

    Mainly people draw alligators in my town and everything is named after our football team. Gator this and that.

    Gorgeous. In LA the taggers and artists tend to leave the trees, they tag around them. There's a strange quiet respect for nature.

    Really beautiful. A painted fence rather than a prison wall.

    Slim pickins on the mural front in Palm Springs. It's an old, 60's modern, rich, gay community that doesn't create the best backdrop for the low class mural. They have a ginormous statue of Marilyn Monroe in the middle of downtown for some reason. I couldn't be arsed (as they say) to get out of the car to take a pic so I snapped one from the street. Sorry if I gave her an orange, square ding dong, not intentional.



    Do business mural's count? There was a cafe that went out of business on Indian Canyon Drive (the one way road OUT of town, Marilyn was on Palm Canyon, the one way road into town,) in between Ramon and Saturnina:



    When I first passed it I thought the business was "Bitch Country" and I thought "Can they name a business that?" On the other side of the failed cafe is the saddest mural of all time next to a vacant desert lot. It looks like some sort of attempt at an all-seeing eye or something.





    I got the idea driving around that God hides himself in the coolest places, his mystery. And if God is speaking to Morrissey, it would be pretty incredible to follow him around America and document the murals in the cities he sings in. Maybe there's some gems. Morrissey sings to the people every night and connects to them and whatnot (and usually it's the same people hogging the barrier over and over and over but that's a whole nuther topic ) but what if the roadmap laid out for him had visual clues he could pic up hidden in the murals in the cities? I suppose all you have to do is buy a concert t-shirt and retrace the tour from the back of the shirt, but I bet there's some parallel coolness going on in the urban scene of where he's sings each night.

    Marylin reminds me of those fiberglass Paul Bunyan statues you see at highway tourist attractions.

    The sky on those last two pics is amazing--looking like a mural itself.

    Cosmic Contact High. I get it alllll the time. I like that Paul Bunyon observation!

    The sky's here are beautiful, but the mountains amazing. Reminds me of a recent Onion article (or at least recent to me, they recycle those things) where they interviewed God and he said that human's aren't his greatest achievement so much, mountains are.

    These are eerie...in a good way.

    Had a beer(s) last night at the Powerhouse in Hollywood and snapped a couple pics of the murals behind it.





    There's actually a really huge mural down the street of John Ritter but we were on our way to a concert. Next time.

    Wow, that Charlie Chaplin one is awesome!

    Here is a crappy pic of some images painted on the bowl at the skate park in Cottonwood, AZ.

    No, Maria's Taco Xpress is just a locally owned Taco place in Austin. It's kind of a local landmark- it's been featured on Food Network a couple of times, which they're quite proud of.

    Mural on the side of Rios Interiors, N. Main Street in the Fort Worth Stockyards District.


    Knuckle Up Tattoo Parlor, next door to Rio Interiors, also on North Main Street. Fort Worth, Texas



    Side of the Stage Coach Ballroom (a Country & Western Dance Hall) on East Belknap in Fort Worth, Texas


    The mural is pretty detailed, but due to the lack of wide angle lens on my camera some of the detail isn't that clear.




    JR's Grocery Store, with a Snack Bar inside! Sylvania Ave., Fort Worth, Texas
