I'm flabbergasted, honored, and grateful but obviously not speechless.
Am I the last person to be the subject of a giant mural? If you don't have yours yet, please call Joe Dreher for all your mural needs and do request William Mize as co-muralist.
At 1:30 a.m. Joe (black shirt) and William (white shirt) took a hiatus to see what it looks like in daylight.

This was the first VintageATL mural. It's by Pill Harris aka @polygonphil shown here December 19, 2014.
Joe and assistants buffed it in the rain.
I kind-of like it white.
Joe set up the iPad, projector, ladder, and extension cord across the street. Big thanks to Listen Up Audiobooks for the window and the electricity.
The projection began at dusk.
Joe went at it with a ladder and one of those wide-body flat pencils.
Up, trace, down, ladder-move, up, repeat.
Joe dotted my eye.
Then the black paint.
That's my glasses.
Joe drew a crowd too. About midnight William Mize (white T-shirt) showed up to assist. East Atlanta came alive at midnight.
All the while Joe took pictures of spectators for his in-house installation. Come to the opening to see if you are in the show.
After a midnight snack at the Midway, Joe and William nearly finished it.
They want to see in daylight.
Come to the opening, then see at your leisure until May 23. Maybe we'll have a closing party too.
Glad to join Sharon Dennehey and the other "bigs."
