The guy in the picture is John Meier a librarian at PSU. He’s also one of the steering committee members for the Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize.
As we’ve written here a few times, one of the weird memories of our youth is seeing a giant Charles Addams mural in the vestibule of a crappy apartment building on 59th and Madison; never explained. Were these murals just like faerie circles that sprang up magically after the rain?
The building was torn down years ago…wonder what ever happened to the mural?
