  1. Fabulous artwork, Rob. Whoever the artist is, he/she is clearly talented. Christmas in July sounds about right. I’ve already received my first Christmas catalogue. As an early bird, I appreciate it, though.

      1. What’s the city’s stance on murals and graffiti, Rob? Do artists need permission to do work like the one in this post, or can they go ahead and do it? I’m just thinking about how I’d react if somebody painted something like that on the side of my house or on the building of a business I owned.

      2. I have to take a look at the law to give you a precise answer. Most of this work is done on abandoned buildings and in alleyways. Some of it is commissioned. One of the most popular public galleries in the City is on Clarion Alley in the Mission District. I’ll look it up the law regarding this later today because now I’m curious.

  2. What a beautifully done mural, Rob. Thanks for sharing it.
    While not the same mood as your post, I keep thinking that it looks a lot like Kurt Russell as Santa Clause.

    Just barely in time for “Christmas in July” even though I have a hard enough time dealing with it in December. LOL.

      1. So, that is awesome to know! That gives even more meaning to the song and to the message. Also it feels like looking back in his own life when he sang it as a young and now as a much older man. I love that!
