watt’s picture of the week – thursday, september 20, 2018

ever wonder about where my pedro town’s “mascot” came from? random lengths publisher james allen wrote me an email last february saying:

“a faux finish house painter by the name of Dave Butkus use to live in that neighborhood and he came up with the design by painting out some graffiti and at one point registered a copy right on the image.”

the original (his graffiti – the one of the fish, not the one before) is still there (though vandalized/repaired many times), right near the korean friendship bell – on gaffey street, right at 38th street – facing east, towards our harbor.
