Oh, hi guys. You know how I love to (totally normal) do murals in bakery and sweet-shop bathrooms? I did a mural in the bakery bathroom at Cake Eater bakery in Minneapolis (now a doughnut shop) and another at Bluebird Ice Cream in Seattle.
Well, I just realized that I never told you that I did a third one, at High 5 Pie in Seattle.
If you've been to High 5 Pie recently and used the restroom, this is probably not news to you.
But if you haven't been, or if you happened to use the "not as awesome" bathroom (they have two), you might not have seen my mural. So I'm going to tell you a bit about it. Before I started, the bathroom looked like this:
But then I took out my pencil and started making marks on the wall. I made sure to make a sign so that I wouldn't be...ummm...interrupted.
And I broke out my paint and got to work.
The owner, Dani, had been concerned about my precious mural being graffitied--I didn't mind if it was, but it gave me an idea: what if I made it graffiti-themed? Sweet little pie taggers!
Here are some shots of the finished work. My apologies as bathrooms never have amazing light for photographs!
Of course, I fit in some little references to artists I love, like Keith Haring...
...and of course a taco in love with a hand pie, a love story that is not gonna work out, I don't think.
So, if you find yourself in Seattle, go to High 5 Pie. Eat something delicious. And use the bathroom! But don't forget...
Thanks to High 5 Pie for letting me hang out in their bathroom for a long time!
