Rick Therrio and North Avenue

On the way to the Polkaholics, I had Rick use my disposable camera to take a photo of me in front of this odd mural on North Avenue. I guess I didn't realize exactly how tall the mural was, what with my having no depth perception and all. Then I posed so that I'd have that pointed tower building--that's what I call it--at the intersections of Damen, Milwaukee, and North. Rick pulled off a great shot. I might crop it to get the car out of the picture, but I don't know. Seems OK. Then today Rick emailed me this piece of art he'd been working on, Jonny Algiers as painted by Rick Therrio.
