Challenge: Where in Eagle Rock Was This Photo Taken?

And what do you think is the story behind it?

Eagle Rock native Tim Ryder took this photograph of a wall painting in the neighborhood and wonders, like many of you undoubtedly must be, what it means to depict.

It's on the side of the health food store across from Trader Joes on Colorado. And my tattoo artisit Eddy VonTista is the artist and the kid in the picture is his son.

It's going to be a juice bar, right? Very exciting!

I saw this amazing masterpiece as my mom and I were exiting Stefano's and I just don't think I've seen any thing like it! Quite heavenly!

Exactly correct, Rachael and Gabrielle. I hear that the juice bar is going to open in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned.

Wow! Cool! And a Juice Bar? Like an alternative to Jamba Juice, except substantially healthier? :D

um... it's kind of hideous and over-embellished. It's great for you if you think it's nice, but when I'm driving down Colorado coming around that curve and this massive mural of a bloated child grabs my attention... 1 I'm gagging inside. 2 It's distracting enough to make me almost accidentally bump the car in front of me.

Jamba Juice was started as a project for a business class by a kid at UC Santa Cruz. The professor gave him a "D" on the project. My nephew attends UC Santa Cruz, home of the Banana Slugs.

I agree Jinx! The strange looking bloated boy should have been left out of this graffiti/mural. It's gaudy enough without adding more to it.
