My fellow Backwards Beekeepers Club member Russell Bates says,
Phil Lumbang is a local graphic designer who works for Obey Giant. He's also an outdoor artist, and he's been painting a series of friendly/polite bears all over the Eastside.
Amy came up with the great idea of asking him to paint the giant wall in front of our house, and he was excited about the opportunity.
Phil attacked the wall on Saturday, and the results are spectacular. I documented the whole process, including an interview, time-lapse footage of Phil painting the mural, and some of his other work in the neighborhood. You can see the video at my blog: http://www.porkfist.com
