Our first mural officially on the road turned out to be one of our most popular. We did some shopping for walls around Logan Square and landed on this one with the help of Galerie F and Amuse126. When we painted there, nothing else was surrounding our mural, and now it's completely covered with other murals. Greetings from Chicago mural also ended up on the Chicago Wikipedia page, on television and in magazines.
Painting there in May 2015, we quickly learned how extreme the Chicago weather can get, as we worked odd hours overnight to get this mural done to avoid the rain and wind. We slept in the lot next to the mural to guard the scaffolding all week and really got a sense of the neighborhood from all the characters who would pass by and chat with us. Sleeping under that train was not ideal.
