This neat robot mural was from a just a few years ago on the side of the Amoeba building, close to the sidewalk. It has since been covered over with a horrible cartoon-style thug. I’m not really a fan of those cartoon-style thug murals.
I like this piece a lot. The robot design is very simple but he has great character. I also love the colors in the background a lot. It brings out a really fresh contrast and is easy on the eyes.
But the best part of this pictures is the pose the littles are striking.
It’s that “I’ve HAD it with you! I can’t stand to look you in the face or even in the same direction anymore” body language. Total rock star picture. I remember thinking “C’mon guys. Who do you think you are, Oasis? It’s not that bad. I’m just took you to Amoeba and now we’re off to get some Fat Slice pizza. It’s not that bad.”
I love this picture. It’s one of my all time favorites. It personifies this idea that there are these windows of opportunity that you have with everything; murals, business, people. You have this window of opportunity that you think will last awhile and then in a heartbeat that moment is gone.
