      Thanks for the name. It was driving me nuts because I could not remember his name but had just seen a commercial for a concert of his taking place in Chitown. You never forget the man singing on a horse. I think it's a living space but I am not sure. It's behind a grocery store near my house. They did a pretty good job with it I think. Interesting choice to paint as far a figures go but that's when you know your in Pilsen. Different heroes in this hood. There was an OK mural of Jesus originally in it's place but this much better and Jesus is still there. Ironically I think he's dressed up in the colors of Guadalupe. It's just missing the aura.

      haha yeah. no problem. yeah it looks pretty good except i dont like the fact that they cut out the bottom half of jesus like that they should have atleast used clouds right under him. he looks kinda weird just floating there. overall its pretty cool looking. do u know how long it took to paint?

      I saw them working on it again today so I don't think their are quite done. I think it has been about 2 -3 weeks but it looks likes it's one guy doing it all. He has a lift however so that helps out a lot on projects like this. If you look at it up close the detail is pretty good on the faces. I was thinking the same thing about Jesus so maybe the'll put Jesus rising out of clouds yet. It would make sense.

      Thanks you should pass through again because they finally finished it so jesus is not cut off anymore. It's a great tribute to him especially since he lived and raised kids in this neighborhood.
