Daniel with Converse shoes 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 FAN PHOTOS

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 Sound Exchange Music store on 21st and Guadalupe Ave., the location is a favorite photo-taking spot.  
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.

Article as far back as 1995 describing the iconic status of the mural:
Trikont - Critique


1996 naming it "Austin's Best Graffiti / Mural":              http://www.austinchronicle.com/issues/annual/bestof/96/readers/boa96.R.arch.html


How about some poetry on the subject?


Okay - CitySearch.com will help visitors to the city find the location of the mural!!
