Daniel sees the Converse "Worried Shoes" for the first time.
Converse licensed Daniel's art for the shoe, paid for the
licensing, but canceled the line before it went to production.
Perhaps a dozen pairs WERE made, though, and they show up around
the world from time to time. This pair was
sent to Daniel thanks to Christopher Altenburg (our honorary
MEMBER OF THE MONTH). More photos under

We were sent this photo of some vandalism on the
Hi How Are
You mural in Austin, Texas. Originally painted
by Daniel Johnston on the side of the
Exchange Music store on 21st and Guadalupe Ave., the
location is a favorite
photo-taking spot. The damage HAS SINCE BEEN REPAIRED!
In 2004 Austin citizens spontaneously organized to save the
mural from demolition when construction workers were preparing
to demolish the wall. Owner
John Oudt responded at the time by changing the remodeling
plans to preserve the wall.

now available in HD format for the iPad!
