I had also found a blog for artist Gary Panter, who has done art for The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, MTV and Rolling Stone. He was actually born in Brownsville and in his blog, he says the local sights and sounds (with their Mexican influence) had influenced his artwork, especially the huge movie posters that used to hang outside the old Majestic theatre downtown.
I will probably do more research on his work so I will post more about him when I can. I also took a closer look at the grafitti on Jefferson and 4th. I have to say it's pretty good. I am sure that the artist had done his research by looking at other grafitti samples and planned the piece because it is well composed. Maybe next time I go to Brownsville I will take a digital camera with me so you all can see what I am talking about. Okay, I have to go to bed now. I leave for Austin in about 6 hrs. I want to avoid the Spring Break traffic so I am leaving early. Goodnight!
